Bentley and his assistant Ken McKenna have signed new two-year deals at the North-West club, and the former defender insists that he has enjoyed his first two years in the job.
The 37-year-old told Sky Sports News: "I have been at Morecambe for more than 10 years and it is a place that is close to my heart.
"I have enjoyed my last two years in management and I feel that we are progressing both on and off the pitch.
"Kenny and myself are working really hard and no-one could be more determined to make this a success than the pair of us."
Morecambe are currently in sixth position in the League Two table.
