It was confirmed today, Thursday (Oct 26) that the head coach has signed a new deal to remain with the reigning league champions.
Pivac took over the reign as head coach from Irishman Simon Easterby after his departure in 2014.
The New Zealander helped the Scarlets win the Guinness PRO12 title in 2016/17, their previous league success being over a decade ago. His new contract will keep him in Llanelli for at least the next few years.
Speaking to the media on Tuesday, (Oct 24) the former Auckland and Fiji coach said: ”It’s the busiest I have been in my three years. It is really important for the Scarlets moving forward. It has all been around sorting out my future with the Scarlets, hopefully it will all be sorted by the end of the week.”
Asked about the possibility of moving to an international vacancy, he said: ”Down the track, if international rugby was an option, I would look seriously at that, you want to operate at the top level.”
However Pivac will remain at Parc Y Scarlets until at least 2019/20, insisting that the full focus is to continue to make the Scarlets a consistently strong side that will help Welsh rugby as a whole.
