Mark O'Donnell will extend his involvement as Auckland cricket coach beyond a decade after signing for two more seasons.

Despite modest returns last summer, O'Donnell has been reappointed through to the end of 2018-19.

He was coach for seven seasons until 2009 before switching his focus elsewhere. Reappointed in 2015, his latest deal will push his service as coach to 11 summers in total.

O'Donnell oversaw two titles in 2015-16 but last summer was leaner for Auckland, finishing third in the Plunket Shield, fourth in the T20 championship and fifth in the one-day competition.
