Inverness Caley Thistle boss John Hughes has signed a new contract that will keep him at the club until the summer of 2018.
The former Falkirk, Hibernian, Livingston and Hartlepool manager replaced manager Terry Butcher in December 2013 and has since led the Highland club to Scottish Cup glory, a League Cup final, third in the Premiership and European football for the first time.
Hughes told the club website: "It’s the outcome I really wanted as I’ve really enjoyed myself at the club and in the Highlands. The supporters have been excellent and there’s a tremendous spirit in the dressing room which I have worked hard to maintain and strengthen."
"It’s a pleasure to work with such a whole-hearted bunch of lads. Brian Rice (assistant) has done a first-class job since coming in three months ago and I’m delighted he’ll be at my side over the next couple of seasons."
Chairman Kenny Cameron added: "It’s extremely pleasing that, having offered John the job two years ago and seen his selection fully vindicated, we’ve now persuaded him to put pen to paper through to the summer of 2018.
"This season has seen the club’s worst-ever injury crisis but players are now returning to fitness and available for selection so we go into the New Year in a much healthier situation and looking to regain momentum."
