Just on Brown, I'd love to see him at the Raiders alongside Mulholland in the talent identification area

It’s been a pretty epic crash for Newcastle from top 4 hopeful to park footy side. Don’t remember too many this horrid.

Newcastle Knights club statement

The Newcastle Knights are pleased to announce the appointment of Adam O’Brien as the Head Coach for the next three seasons.

Having served a lengthy apprenticeship of the highest order during his time in the Melbourne Storm and Sydney Roosters systems, O’Brien brings a deep understanding for the game and management of players.

Knights CEO Mr Philip Gardner said the Club had drawn up a short-list of names to determine the best candidates in the game and securing a coach of O’Brien’s ilk is the best outcome to lead the Club forward.

“We are very excited to have Adam coming in as Head Coach,” Mr 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.”

O’Brien started his professional coaching career as an assistant to Brad Arthur in the Melbourne under 20s side before working as a development coach for the Storm and finally spending five years alongside Craig Bellamy as an assistant.

After serving his 11-year apprenticeship at the Storm, he moved to the Sydney Roosters late last year to work alongside Trent Robinson.

O’Brien said; “The Knights are a strong Club with a significant and passionate supporter base through the Hunter region and beyond.

“They have stability off the field via the Wests Group and a rich nursery of junior talent.

“I have been patient throughout my coaching career, but the time is right to make this move and all of these attributes made the move to Newcastle an easy decision.

“The playing list excites me and the Hunter community excites me. There is a lot to look forward to.

“I am excited about what is around the corner, but my sole focus over the next five weeks remains with the Roosters and our finals campaign. That isn't something I take lightly.

“Once the 2019 season has concluded, I will turn my attention to Newcastle.”

O’Brien will join the Knights for pre-season preparations ahead of 2020.
