Wests Tigers today confirmed the appointment of Mick Potter as the Club’s new NRL Coach for the next two seasons.
The appointment was made following a thorough selection process undertaken by the Club.
Potter was a Premiership winner as a player with the Canterbury Bulldogs in 1984 and 1985. He was also a dual winner of the Dally M Player of the Year Award during an outstanding 201 game career.
Since his retirement as a player, Potter has become one of the most respected coaches in the English Super League, having coached Catalan, St Helens and Bradford with great distinction.
He received the coveted Super League Coach of the Year Award in 2008 and again in the recently completed 2012 season.
Potter becomes the Club’s fourth NRL Coach since its first season in 2000.
Wests Tigers Chief Executive Stephen Humphreys said it was very positive to attract such a well credentialed and respected Coach to take the Club into the future.
“We are thrilled to secure Mick’s services for the next couple of seasons,” Humphreys said.
“Mick has enjoyed considerable success in Europe and we have no doubt that he is ready for the challenge that the NRL will present.
“We see him as the perfect person for the role. He has demonstrated his qualities as a Coach in a range of differing circumstances over the last seven years. He will bring not only this experience but importantly, also a fresh pair of eyes and a new energy to our Club.”
Potter said that it was a great honour to join a Club like Wests Tigers.
“I’m really excited about this opportunity”, he said.
“The Club has some promising young talent coming through the ranks, mixed in with some world-class players as well. The playing roster is full of potential and I can’t wait to start working with the group.
“This role will be a big challenge for me but it’s one that I will approach with lots of confidence and enthusiasm.”
