Lee Radford has signed a new three-year deal to coach Super League side Hull FC until the end of the 2019 season.

"It was an unbelievably easy decision for me," said Radford, who took over from Peter Gentle in 2013.

Owner Adam Pearson praised the 37-year-old former Hull FC player.

"I've worked with a lot of managers and head coaches in my 20 years in professional sport and never met an individual more committed to a club as Lee," said Pearson.

Hull, who are fourth in Super League after winning eight of their 12 games, host second-placed Catalan Dragons on Friday.
