Ryles to return to Storm

Melbourne Storm has announced former player and Assistant Coach, Jason Ryles, will return to the club at the beginning of the 2024 pre-season.

Storm CEO, Justin Rodski, said the club was excited by the opportunity to have secured Ryles after gaining valuable experience away from the club over the last few years.

“We are thrilled to welcome Jason and his family back to the Melbourne Storm,” Rodski said.

Jason is a highly respected person in the game, he’s a talented coach and he will strengthen our football program across a number of different areas.

“Not only will Jason add further depth to our coaching ranks, but he will play an important role working with our pathways, academies, and junior representative programs in the coming years.

“He is a popular figure around our club with coaches, players, staff and our supporters and we can’t wait to see him back at AAMI Park.” Rodski said.

Ryles said he was excited by the opportunity to work with the current and future coaches in the Storm system.

“It wasn’t an easy decision to make but I am very comfortable knowing I am returning to Storm and can’t wait to get back the Club,” Ryles said.

This was a decision I made with my family, and I know it will be best for my coaching growth and development. I have an enormous amount of respect for the Club and couldn’t resist the opportunity to return to work with Craig, Frank and the football department when it was presented.

“The opportunity to be involved with the senior coaching and playing group as well as playing a role in the future of the club through the pathways and junior reps program is very exciting.

“The Roosters have been a wonderful club to work at and I am grateful to them for the opportunity they have provided me over the last couple of seasons.” Ryles said.

Ryles left Storm at the end of the 2020 season to take up a position as skills coach with the England rugby union team before moving into the role as Assistant Coach role at the Roosters.

Ryles first joined Storm as a player in 2012 and played 47 games across two seasons, including a World Club Challenge win, before retiring at the end of the 2013 season.

He was a member of the Storm coaching staff in 2016 and helped Storm to a premiership success in 2017 and two other grand final appearances.
