Steve Evans signs new Rotherham United deal

29 May 2014

Rotherham United boss Steve Evans has been rewarded for delivering back-to-back promotions with a new three-year contract.

The 51-year-old Scot came to the Millers in 2012 and in his first full season guided his side to second place in League 2 before following it up with a second successive rise from League 1 after beating Leyton Orient in Sunday's League One Play-Off Final at Wembley.

It means Evans, who had one year remaining on his previous deal, has effectively won four promotions on the bounce as he left former club Crawley to join the Millers in the final throes of the 2011/12 season with the Red Devils comfortably in the top three.

And chairman Tony Stewart, who fought off interest for Evans from Sheffield Wednesday in November, has moved quickly to tie down his manager down to a lengthy stay at New York Stadium.

Evans said on Sky Sports News: "It's fantastic to be a club in the Championship and playing the likes of Nottingham Forest, Derby County and Leeds United.

"We know the challenge that lies ahead...but we'll do it our way."
