Scott to extend Geelong contract until 2020

Geelong coach Chris Scott is set to sign a contract extension to keep him at the Cats until the end of 2020.

During his Tuesday morning press conference, Scott all but confirmed a deal is in place to see him extend his contract.

“The club is committed to me and I’m committed to the club,” he said.

“As far as I’m concerned, it’s [contract extension] done. It will be three years.”

Scott joined the Cats in 2011 and won the premiership in his first year with the club, and has also taken Geelong to the finals in five of his six seasons at the helm.

He has the highest winning percentage of any coach in VFL/AFL history to have coached over 100 games, with his 102 wins and one draw from 142 matches placing him at the top of the list with 72.2%.
