DORTMUND, Germany — Germany coach Joachim Loew will stay in charge through the World Cup in Qatar in 2022.

The German soccer federation says it was initially planned to extend Loew's deal through the European Championship in 2020, but he has agreed to stay another two years, along with assistant coach Thomas Schneider and goalkeeping coach Andreas Koepke.

Oliver Bierhoff, the national team general manager, is also extending his deal, to 2024, along with assistant Marcus Sorg.

Loew has been in charge since taking over from Jurgen Klinsmann after the 2006 World Cup. Loew had been Klinsmann's assistant as Germany finished third in its home tournament.

The former Freiburg midfielder has overseen steady progress as Germany coach, finishing runner-up at Euro 2008, third at the World Cup in 2010, before making up for a semifinal exit at Euro 2012 by winning the World Cup title in 2014.
