THEY are still without a head coach, but a year to forget for Parramatta has finally hit a bright spot with new sponsorship deals worth more than $1 million announced by the Eels on Wednesday.

Property developer Dyldam will replace long-time backer Pirtek as the club's major sponsor for the next three seasons, while online betting group Unibet have signed on as well as a back-of-jersey sponsor.

It is understood the two deals are valued at more than $1 million a year.

"These two deals collectively are the biggest sponsorship in the club's history," Parramatta chief executive Scott Seward said. "The jersey now and the brand on it is worth more than it's ever been."

That is despite the Eels claiming two wooden spoons in a row and being rocked by another seasons of instability and disharmony from the board room to the dressing room. They remain on the hunt for a head coach to replace Ricky Stuart, who quit last month with two years remaining on his contract to take up an offer with Canberra.

Dyldam were previously a jersey sleeve sponsor but have upgraded to replace Pirtek on the front of the Eels' jumper.

"To me it shows a bit of faith in our administration and our board that an existing partner has confidence in us to upgrade, but also an international company has the confidence in us to come on board in their first ever sponsorship in Australia," Seward said. "I think there is two ticks for us as a club there."

Parramatta are still to appoint a new coach, and have also interviewed candidates for a football director position.

"It's very important that we get the right person, from a rugby league perspective and a cultural perspective as well. We make no apologies for taking a bit longer to ensure that we do get the right person in that role," Seward said.
