Joachim Löw has extended his contract as head coach of Germany until 2016 with general manager Oliver Bierhoff and goalkeeper coach Andreas Kopke also committing to new two-year deals.
The 53-year-old, who has the highest win percentage of any Germany manager, will celebrate his 100th match in charge against Italy in Milan on Nov. 15.
If he sees out his new contract, Löw will be the longest-serving manager of Die Mannschaft since Helmut Schon was replaced in 1978 following 14 years at the helm.
