Gundagai captain Luke Berkrey will step into a new role with the club in 2021.
Berkrey and Jarrod Crane have been announced as Adam Perry's successors in a new coaching set up.
Crane is an assistant coach this season and is thrilled to be given the chance to lead the club in their centenary year.
"I'm very excited, very proud and very honoured as it will be a special year for the club," Crane said.
"To get the nod with Berks is very exciting."
The 26-year-old hasn't played in five years following a serious knee injury.
However he has coached Riverina's junior representatives and sees it as a great way to stay involved in the sport.
"When I was playing then I didn't expect to be coaching a first grade side so early," Crane said.
Berkrey, who was co-coach of Cootamundra in 2015, steps into the role after coaching Gundagai's Weissel Cup side for the past three years.
While looking forward to the opportunity his focus for now is solely on helping Gundagai in their quest for another premiership.
"It is pretty exciting but we are not too worried about it yet," Berkrey said.
"We still have a big thing on our mind this year - we want what the other three teams who are now left want and will do everything we can to do that first."
Perry steps down after two years as the Tigers coach.
He was also an assistant to James Smart when Gundagai won the 2018 premiership.
