Tim Glasby started his career with the Melbourne Storm and will return to the club in an off-field role.

Glasby’s new role will be the club’s Recruitment Manager and Pathways Officer, based on the Sunshine Coast.

After playing 138 NRL games, Glasby retired due to ongoing concussion symptoms and will replace the outgoing Dane Campbell.

Glasby won the 2017 premiership with the Storm, a World Club Challenge, and spent six years with the club.

He would then join the Newcastle Knights and play five games for the Queensland Maroons.

Glasby is pleased to return to the club where it all began in a new role.

“I’m really excited to be back at the club that first gave me a chance to play NRL back in 2012,” Glasby said.

“I had a great time as a player here over six seasons and I’m now looking forward to coming back in a new and different role for me.”

Glasby looks forward to the challenge of the new role and learning from those within the successful Storm system.

“It’s a great challenge but I have some great people to learn from and a great system at Storm that has delivered so much success over the years,” Glasby continued.

The Storm knows that having Glasby back at the club is a boost for them when it comes to identifying talent.

“We know from his six years at the Club, Tim is an outstanding character who always conducted himself in an extremely professional and highly respected manner,” Storm General Manager of Football Frank Ponissi said.

“We are delighted to have Tim back at Melbourne Storm and we have no doubt he will add great value to our recruitment and development programs.”
