The Newcastle Knights have confirmed one of the worst kept secrets in rugby league with Sydney Roosters assistant Adam O’Brien to take on the head coaching duties for the next three years.
“We are very excited to have Adam coming in as Head Coach,” Knights CEO Phil Gardner said.
“Aside from quality coaching, we want quality people within the organisation and Adam ticks all of those boxes.
“Adam has had extensive experience in development and transition programs, along with his experience in leading premiership winning Clubs.
“We look forward to Adam’s arrival ahead of the 2020 season.
“We’d like to thank the Roosters and in particular, Trent Robinson for allowing Adam to go through this process.
“There is nothing better for us, then to have Adam come to the Knights from a premiership winning system.”
