Saracens boss Mark McCall and his backroom team have been handed new three-year contracts by the Aviva Premiership champions.
Director of rugby McCall, head coach Andy Farrell, defence coach Paul Gustard, forwards coach Alex Sanderson, kicking coach Dan Vickers and technical director Brendan Venter will all remain with the club until 2014 the club revealed on Tuesday.
McCall, who took over the club's reins in January, went on to lead Saracens to the Aviva Premiership title with a 22-18 victory over Leicester Tigers capping an outstanding season.
Speaking about the appointments on the club website, club chairman Nigel Wray said: "Not only do we have a talented group of coaches... they are also an exceptional group of people and that is just as important. We have stability within our coaching and playing staff, and they work fantastically hard for each other, which makes me so excited about the future."
