Berlin - After wrapping up the Bundesliga 2 title with time to spare, Hertha BSC Berlin have moved quickly to sign current head coach Jos Luhukay to a contract extension that will keep him at the club until 2016.

To kick off Hertha's annual general meeting on Tuesday, sporting director Michael Preetz was delighted to announce the Dutchman's decision to prolong his stay in the German capital.


The "builder of success", as Preetz refered to him, will continue to work in tandem with assistant coaches Markus Gellhaus and Rob Reekers, who have also signed deals to stay with the club for the forseeable future with the aim of keeping Hertha in the Bundesliga beyond next season.

Luhukay, who took over at Hertha last summer following his departure from FC Augsburg, inspired his side to the Bundesliga 2 title and an immediate return to the top flight during his first season in charge, breaking a second-tier record by amassing 76 points in the process.
