He played for his fair share of NRL teams during his career, before moving into coaching, and for Wynnum-Manly Seagulls coach Paul Green – a decision has been made to further his career by joining the Sydney Roosters as an assistant coach.
Green, who is a dual premiership winning coach, will be both the Toyota Cup coach at the Roosters, as well as an assistant under new coach Trent Robinson.
â€œI have mixed feelings about leaving. Iâ€™ve had a great time here at the Seagulls and achieved what Iâ€™d set out to,â€ Green said.
â€œI want to thank all of our supporters, sponsors and Arthur Lovell and the board of
the Leagues club.
â€œThis is a great opportunity as the Roosters are a club on the way up.
“They have a good roster in both NRL and NYC and Iâ€™m looking forward to the new challenge. I am sad to be leaving as I am born and bred here at Wynnum but excited about the opportunity.â€
As the club looks for a new coach, Scott Thornton, the CEO of Wynnum Manly, wishes Green all the best with his move to the NRL coaching ranks.
â€œPaul has given this club great service and ensured we have been a successful club while he has been here,â€ Thornton said.
â€œPaulâ€™s progression highlights that this competition is the best pathway for not only players but also coaches and support staff to be involved in elite rugby league.â€
