FAM has extended contracts for Flames coach Young Chimodzi and his deputy Jack Chamangwana by a year.
The decision was made at the association’s executive committee meeting held in Blantyre on Saturday.
FAM president Walter Nyamilandu confirmed the development, saying the pair cracked the executive committee’s nod after successfully guiding the Flames into the group stages of the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations.
“The executive committee also considered time factor as the team will be regrouping soon to prepare for the first Group B away match against Mali on September 10.
“We have already contacted the Ministry of Sports and we are negotiating the contracts,” said Nyamilandu.
He said the coaches have already been briefed about the development.
Chimodzi yesterday confirmed being contacted, saying they would now engage the authorities to agree on the terms.
“In principle, we are in agreement, but we woould want to discuss one or two things so that it should be a win-win situation,” he said.
Under Chimodzi and Chamangwana, the Flames have played nine games, won two, drawn three and lost four.
