Hawthorn coach Alastair Clarkson has signed a three year contract extension.

The deal keeps the four-time premiership coach at the club until the end of the 2019 season, extending his stay at the Hawks to 15 seasons.

“He’s signed his contract and it’s all done,” Hawthorn chief executive Stuart Fox said on 3AW on Friday.

“‘Clarko’ was always staying at the club. As I said, we agreed to terms two months ago, and once we agreed there was some minor little details that both parties had to tidy up.

“That was done and now it’s done.”

He is currently the club’s second longest serving coach on 263 games, behind John Kennedy on 299 games.
