Chris Scott has extended his contract with Geelong.

Scott and Geelong agreed to terms on a new deal that will see the Cats coach locked in until the end of 2019.

Geelong CEO Brian Cook spoke of his delight.

"Extending Chris’ contract has been on our agenda since last year, and we are pleased that we have been able to come to this agreement," he said on
"We want Chris to be our coach and he wants to continue with the club. From the time Chris joined the club in late 2010, he has consistently demonstrated all the attributes what we look for in a senior coach. Chris has overseen the team through a period of significant regeneration, and we set him a difficult task from the very beginning.
"We asked that he embrace the challenges that a list overhaul would bring while at the same time continuing to challenge for success at our near the top of the ladder. That Chris and the football department have been able to achieve both goals is a credit to everyone involved."
