New coaching panel on Storm's horizons

New coaching panel on the Storm's horizon
Melbourne Storm will shortly be in a position to reveal a revamped coaching staff following Stephen Kearney's resignation today, CEO Ron Gauci has announced.

As expected, Kearney today informed club officials he would be taking up the vacant Parramatta Eels coaching role in 2011, with a replacement at the Storm to be publicly announced in the coming weeks.

Gauci said the Storm always expected Kearney, who has served a five-year apprenticeship under Craig Bellamy, to assume a head coaching role at some point in his career.
Gauci, appointed to the Storm CEO role in July this year, said a contingency plan to replace Kearney as Bellamy's No.1 assistant was well advanced.
