Baxter has won the Premiership title twice in three years at Naturena since joining in 2012, and won the 2013 Nedbank Cup and the 2014 MTN8 competition.
His steady stream of trophies has reportedly attracted the envious eyes of numerous clubs outside of South Africa, but the 61-year-old has assured Chiefs fans he has no plans of leaving.
"I am staying with the club. I have enjoyed every minute of my time since I came here in 2012 and I look forward to even greater future with the club who have big ambitions that I would like to be a part of," Baxter told a press conference.
The Englishman apologised to fans for failing to win the league last season, when they gave up a substantial lead at the top of the table to lose out to Mamelodi Sundowns, and pledged to challenge again next season.
"My apologies for not being able to be here last year, maybe we had to give others a chance, but we are here this time," he added.
"Everyone came to the party for us whenever we needed them to and that's always something nice to have and be happy about as a coach.
"We had a lot of variations. We could change tactics during and before the game and still come out victorious and that is partly due to the quality we had this season than the last two."
