ROME - Roma coach Rudi Garcia has signed a three-year contract extension that will keep him with the Giallorossi through the 2017-18 season.

Roma announced the extension Friday, which was expected after Garcia guided the club to a second-place finish in his first season — and a direct berth in the Champions League.

Garcia's previous deal was due to expire after next season.

Roma's American president James Pallotta says, "After I spent the first 30 minutes with Rudi in New York last year, I knew he would be the right choice to lead Roma for hopefully a long time. ... This is one more step in accomplishing our long term vision."

A Frenchman, the 50-year-old Garcia previously managed Saint-Etienne, Dijon, Le Mans and Lille.
