The Sydney Roosters have today appointed former Sydney Roosters player Trent Robinson as Head Coach.
Robinson has agreed to a three-year contract and will join the Roosters from Super League's the Catalans Dragons where he has held the position of head coach since 2011. In his first season with the club, he took the side from last to sixth and was named 'Super League Coach of the Year', and this year, the team is currently well-placed to go all the way.
Roosters Chairman Nick Politis was enthusiastic about the appointment.
"We are extremely pleased that Trent will be joining the Roosters after agreeing to terms for the next three years. We believe that he is the ideal candidate to take the Roosters forward with regard to what we aim to achieve in terms of success," said Mr Politis.
"Trent was a key contributor to the Roosters success in 2010 and while he is still a relatively young coach, he already has pedigree and experience gained over his time as an assistant coach in the NRL and as a head coach in the Super League.
"We wish Trent well with the Catalans Dragons finals campaign and look forward to welcoming him back to the Sydney Roosters ahead of the commencement of the club's 2013 pre-season," he added.
A player in the Roosters junior ranks from 1995-1998, Robinson's coaching career commenced with France's Toulouse Olympique in 2005. He was assistant coach with the Newcastle Knights from 2007-2009 before joining the Roosters in 2010 as the assistant coach in charge of defence.
