North Queensland announced that they signed head coach Paul Green to a new three-year deal with the Cowboys.

Green and the club came to an agreement to remain in Townsville until the end of the 2021 season.

The Cowboys coach denied that recent contract talks have been a distraction or part of the reason for the side's recent form slump.

"I've been open and honest with them and if ever they have any questions about where it's heading to come and see me," the 2015 NRL Premiership-winning coach said.

"If it is a distraction, now it's off the table for us."

The Cowboys were ecstatic to have secured Green, the club’s most successful head coach who has led the side to the NRL finals each year since joining the club in 2014.

The new deal means he will be a Cowboy through 2016, and if he advances into a starting role and excels he could have another deal before then. Scandrick has made only nine starts in his career but he’s considered a valuable member of the secondary.

"Paul Green has become an integral part of the history of this club, guiding us to a maiden premiership in 2015 and a grand final berth against all odds last year," Cowboys chairman Laurence Lancini said.

Dallas. Detroit. Green Bay. LA Rams. Minnesota. Lawrence and his agent said they’re expecting either a long-term deal to get done before free agency, or a franchise tag. The Cowboys should have a few of their players locked up. They should keep him…but get new coaches…they changed out everyone except HC, OC, and DC.

Jason Taumalolo will finish his career at the North Queensland Cowboys and has urged the club to back a winning trifecta by locking up coach Paul Green and five-eighth In mid-2015 Taumalolo had a two-year million deal on the table to join the New Zealand Warriors sitting right in front of him.

"Paul has been deeply invested in the North Queensland community during both his tenure as a player and now as a coach and understands how important the club and the region are to each other.

"Finalising this deal is what we have all been working towards and it has always been the intention of both parties for Paul to continue being the head coach of this club."

Green was hoping that now the deal was done he would be able to get back to the job at hand. With just one win so far in 2018, NRL fans have been very critical of the Cowboys.

"I am extremely blessed to be able to work with such a talented and committed playing group and look forward to continuing to help our players realise their full potential," Green said.

"The future looks very bright for our club as we usher in the next generation of talent and prepare for a move to our new home stadium from 2020.

"There is no question it is an extremely exciting time to be part of the Cowboys as we charge ahead into a new era."

After the Cowboys stopped the rot with a 26-14 win over the Gold Coast Titans in Townsville, Scott spoke openly about the team’s early-season struggles.“We’ve definitely been guilty over the last five weeks of probably letting the team down in little areas – whether it’s discipline, errors or effort – so it’s important for us to have that core group of players playing well,” Scott said of the Cowboys’ leaders.
