SYDNEY, Jan 28 AAP - Penrith Panthers boss Phil Gould has reportedly re-signed with the NRL club, committing until the end of 2017.

Gould, who coached the Panthers to their maiden premiership in 1991, returned in the role of general manager in 2011 and has since taken a hardline approach to turning the club's fortunes around.

He made the controversial decision to shed popular players Luke Lewis (Cronulla) and Michael Jennings (Sydney Roosters), while reshaping the club's roster and recruiting Ivan Cleary as coach.

As a result of the significant turnover seen at the club at all levels, Gould told Fairfax Media that he wasn't prepared to step away with the job not yet done.

"I've asked a number of people to join our club - coaches, players and management - over the last 18 months," Gould said.

"They've all shown confidence in us and joined in good faith, so I can't really walk away from them until we've spent a fair bit of time together.

"I'm really happy with how the club is placed at the moment."
