Macleod president Steve Doherty said the club was thrilled to retain Stagliano for the next two years.
“The club is looking forward to building on the strong foundation built by Christian and the coaching team during the lead up to the cancelled 2020 season,” Doherty said.
“With strong player retention and a great pipeline of youth coming through the ranks, we look forward to returning to finals action in 2021.
“The re-appointment of Christian and our coaching panel is a great building block for the future of the club.
“We are excited for what lies ahead and a great boost to our prospects for season 2021, which will see us return to a renovated pavilion with upgraded facilities and a new playing surface at De Winton Park.”
Stagliano said he was looking forward to the continuing to the club, particularly after a promising pre-season prior to the cancelled 2020 campaign.
“I’m really excited to have committed to Macleod for a further two seasons,” Stagliano said.
“To continue the work we began as a team 18 months ago is something I’m really looking forward to.
“We had a really promising summer where we had great energy and numbers on the track. We have a great mix of experienced senior players and exciting developing players that I am looking forward to continuing to work with.”
Macleod also confirmed the reappointment of reserves coach Dean Harrington and under-19 coach Peter Gleisner until 2022, providing stability and consistency across its coaching and development program.
