Brown joins Storm as coaching consultant

Melbourne Storm has appointed Nathan Brown to a coaching consultant role based in Sydney for 2015.

Brown and Storm today agreed to terms for the new role following his return to Australia.

Brown, who spent the past six years coaching in England, will provide the Club’s coaching staff with weekly opposition analysis of Storm’s upcoming opposition. He will also provide specialist coaching for the Club’s dummy halves as well as assisting in a recruitment role.

Melbourne Storm Football Director Frank Ponissi said:

“We are pleased to have Nathan join Storm in a consultancy role. From the study trips Craig and I have undertaken in AFL, NFL and European soccer, opposition scouting is an area we have found clubs have put resources to. We see this as another tool that our coaching staff in Adam O’Brien, Justin Morgan and Anthony Seibold can use as part of preparing the team for the opposition each week.”

As well as a playing career spanning 172 games, Brown coached St Helens and Huddersfield following six seasons as coach of St George Illawarra. His St Helens’ side claimed last years’ Super League title.
