Lee Turnbull returned to the club as Head of Recruitment at the start of the 2016/17 campaign.
On returning the club, one which he has already given over 20 years service to as a player, chief scout and working as part of the SUFC Trust, he said: "People who know me, know this club means a lot to me."
"I've done 20 years service whether it's been a player, part of the management team or heading up the community schemes. It was a pretty easy decision to come back.
"The good thing is that I've experienced promotion already during my time at Scunthorpe United. I think I've seen five promotions, worked with nine managers from being a player when Dave Moore first signed me right the way through to the current manager Graham Alexander, who I played with as well."
