According to a report of the Norwegian newspaper "Dagbladet", Alexander Stoeckl will remain head coach of the Norwegian national team for the next four years.

The contract of the Austrian, who is working in Norway since 2011, is valid until the end of the 2014/15 season and shall now be extended until the next Olympic Winter Games in Pyeongchang 2018.

"Four years are a long time, so I wanted the approval of my family", the 40-year-old is quoted on dagbladet.no. Stoeckl, who was also one of the candidates to follow Alexander Pointner as head coach of the Austrians, considers his work in Norway not finished yet and over the next years he wants to "see progress made on all levels".
