Wales fly-half Ceri Sweeney has signed a new one-year deal with the Exeter Chiefs.
Sweeney, who has 35 caps for Wales, joined the Chiefs from Cardiff Blues last summer.
"He is an ideal person for us because we could put him in there and we would be very comfortable with him starting, or he can be on the bench or he can run our LV= Cup side as skipper - he has a lot of skills," Exeter head coach Rob Baxter said. "Also, he is a particularly good guy around the squad.
"He understands that some of his role will be helping other players around him, and a large part of his role is making sure he's bang on form when his opportunity comes to play. Ceri has been very good at that.
"Ceri will also be doing a little bit of coaching this year and a bit of mentoring, particularly in the academy and some individuals who look to be coming through and developing."
