Bendigo Braves coach Ben Harvey is staying on with the club for at least one more year.
Harvey has resigned with the club for the 2013 season, which will be his fourth at the helm of the Braves.
He faced a tough 2012 campaign, having to release import Daniel Horton due to off-court issues, but took the club to a preliminary final berth against Geelong, in which the Braves ultimately went down by 11 points.
Harvey told the Bendigo Weekly he was undecided on his future as recently as last week.
"After the end of the season I just needed some time off to weigh up my options and make an informed decision," he said.
"It was a tough season with all that went on off-court, but I think it's important to learn from those things and move on, and try to be a better coach because of them."
In a statement released today, Harvey said he is excited to be back with the club in season 2013.
”I’m really excited to be back coaching for another season after we didn’t achieve what we set out to do last year, but now the hard work starts with finding imports and locking away our core group of local players”.
It comes as further good news for the Braves, who announced a three-year sponsorship deal with the Bendigo Bank last week.
