Ipswich Town manager Mick McCarthy has signed a new three-year contract at Portman Road, the club’s official website can confirm today.
The former Wolves boss guided the Tractor Boys to ninth in last season’s Sky Bet Championship, finishing just four points off the play-offs, and has been rewarded with a new contract which will see him remain as Ipswich manager until at least the summer of 2017.
McCarthy took over from Paul Jewell back in October 2012, guiding the Portman Road tenants out of the bottom three and into a comfortable and respectable 14th place come the end of the season.
The former Republic of Ireland manager, who was also capped 57 times by his country during the 80’s and 90’s, has taken charge of 83 Ipswich Town matches, winning 33 and losing 27.
His long time assistant, Terry Connor, has also put pen to paper and signed a three-year deal with the Suffolk club.
The Tractor Boys begin their 2014/15 Championship campaign at home to relegated Fulham on August 9.
