Aaron Tymms will extend his successful tenure with Melton, signing on as coach for the 2022 Ballarat Football Netball League season.
The extension will take Tymms into his sixth year with the Bloods, having first joined as an assistant coach under Brad Murphy.
Tymms took over as senior coach in 2018 and guided the club to a grand final in his first year in charge.
It was followed by a preliminary final appearance in 2019.
Despite a second-place finish, the 2021 season has proven to be one of the hardest for Tymms and Melton.
The Bloods lost two players to season-ending injuries early, before Dyson Stevens suffered severe spinal damage in a freak accident during the Bloods' win against Darley.
