After making the playoffs for the first time in three years, the Saskatchewan Roughriders have extended the contract of head coach Chris Jones.

The move, which will keep Jones with the Riders until 2019, was officially announced by the team Tuesday.

It comes after the green and white made it to the Eastern Conference Finals and nearly made their way to the Grey Cup.

Since taking over as the Riders’ bench boss in December 2015, Jones has compiled a 15-21 record.

The coach also served as the team’s general manager and vice-president of football operations for the 2017 season.
