Holden Cup Head Coach Andrew Webster will depart Wests Tigers to take up an opportunity with the New Zealand Warriors.
Webster has been appointed as one the Warriors’ NRL Assistant Coaches for 2015.
The 32-year-old spent the last 12 months coaching the Wests Tigers Under 20s squad, who were eliminated from the second week of the finals series last Friday.
Webster thanked Wests Tigers for the coaching opportunity this year.
“I’m excited to progress to the next level of coaching and take on a NRL Assistant role,” he said. “In Rugby League coaching there are opportunities that you must take and I believe that this is one of them.
“I have really enjoyed my time with the Wests Tigers, and being a local junior myself, it was a great honour to be involved at a coaching level.
“I’m looking forward to my next coaching endeavour in New Zealand with the Warriors, who are in a similar position to the Wests Tigers with a host of exciting young players in their squad.”
The Club thanks Andrew for his efforts in 2014 and wishes him all the best in the future.
Wests Tigers will seek a replacement NYC coach for 2015 once the process of appointing a NRL Head Coach has concluded.
