Aviva Premiership Rugby Club Saracens have extended their Director of Rugby Mark McCall's contract keeping him at the club until the end of the 2014/15 season, at least.

McCall joined Saracens at the start of the 2009/10 season as First Team Coach and in that first season, helped guide the club to their first Premiership final.

McCall was then promoted to Director of Rugby in January 2011 after Brendan Venter returned to South Africa and took up the role of Technical Director.

"Mark has provided outstanding service for the past three and a half years, and we are delighted he has agreed to continue his excellent work", said Saracens chairman Nigel Wray.

"He leads a strong and talented coaching team with great skill and fantastic commitment, and we are very confident he will continue to guide and inspire the development of the squad."

Capped 13 times by Ireland, the former inside centre coached Ireland U21s and Ireland A and was assistant coach at Ulster for two years before being given the Head Coach's job in 2004.

During his three seasons in charge of the province, they won the Celtic League in 2006 and he oversaw the development of nine of Ulster's players into the Irish national side, the highest number since the game went professional.

He moved to France in 2007 to join the coaching staff at Castres before deciding to join Venter's coaching staff at Saracens.
