Long-serving Coolamon midfielder Jamie Maddox will share the Hoppers’ coaching job with Connor Neyland next season.
Just a fortnight after announcing Neyland will stand down, the Hoppers announced that he will return to the position alongside Maddox in 2019.
It is Maddox’s first coaching job.
The 32-year-old has played more than 200 games for Coolamon and is a two-time premiership player and best and fairest winner.
Maddox, who won the 2012 Jim Quinn Medal, was a long-time captain of the Riverina League representative team and is one of the most respected players in the competition.
He missed the second half of this season with a broken hand.
Mitch Robinson will return from Northern Jets to take on a position of coaching coordinator. He returns home to Coolamon after four years at the Jets, including the last two as senior coach.
The club has also appointed Shaun Bradley and Daniel Crocker as co-coaches of reserve grade.
The appointments come after the Hoppers finished sixth this season, after making finals in 2017.
