Brad Arthur's future has been a hot topic in the league, but the Eels announced on Tuesday they have extended their coach's tenure for a further two seasons.

The contract extension keeps Arthur at Parramatta until the end of the 2021 season.

The future of the coach, as well as those of several off-contract stars - including skipper Clint Gutherson and halfback Mitchell Moses - have been played out in the media for weeks, almost to a comical level.

On Tuesday, the Eels finally confirmed they have locked in Arthur, who has been at the helm since 2014.

Brad Arthur (born 21 May 1974) is an Australian professional rugby league football coach who is the head coach of the Parramatta Eels in the NRL. Arthur was born in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. Arthur was a Parramatta Eels junior and played SG Ball and Under-21s for the club.

Pressure was on following last season's last-placed finish, with the Eels winning just six games.

However, they have made a big turnaround to sit in the top eight after nine rounds in 2019 with a 5-4 record.

Still, there remain big inconsistencies with the team - in round six, the Eels flexed their finals muscle with a 51-6 demolition of Wests Tigers, but were last week trounced by Melbourne 64-10.

"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," Gurr said.
