Parramatta has confirmed that Brad Arthur will remain as the club's coach after signing a two-year contract extension.

After week's of discussions, Arthur is now committed to staying with the Eels until the end of the 2021 season.

Eels CEO Bernie Gurr said that the contract extension was important for the club's future, adding that he "strongly believe[s] in what Brad is building".

"When we undertook our football review last year it was clear that a long term strategy for our football department was needed to ensure our players and coaches have the best possible opportunity for success," he said in a statement this afternoon.

"It is the view of the board and CEO that Brad is the best choice to lead our club's football program into the future."

A "fortunate" Arthur pledged to deliver for the Eels fans.

"We have a proud and passionate supporter base and I want us to give them the results they deserve," he said.

"Everyone involved in our football program realises the responsibility we have in bringing sustained success to our members and fans and that remains our priority."
