Luke Berkrey will take full control of the reins at Gundagai in 2022.
After being part of a co-coaching arrangement with Jarrod Crane this year, Berkrey will captain-coach the Tigers in his own right.
Berkrey believes having one perspective can be a big bonus.
"It's probably just a little bit more hands on as I've taken up a bit of extra slack but I'm looking forward to the extra responsibility," Berkrey said.
"(Co-coaching) is a little bit different as every idea has to be shared and there is a bit more to and fro. Now more responsibility is put on me."
While giving his full support to Berkrey, Tigers secretary Martin Hay still wants Crane involved in the coaching set up at the club.
As such he's looking for him to step into the new coaching co-ordinator role.
"Jarrod is such a great coach that we want him involved that way," Hay said.
"With the position we've offered him he won't have the time to be the co-coach of first grade but would still be an assistant coach."
Gundagai have made a big move in securing former Southcity captain-coach Nathan Rose.
Berkrey is thrilled to have Rose on board, especially with the club set to lose plenty of experience.
"He's been a very good player in Group Nine for a long time and it is exciting he's coming over," Berkrey said.
"Being a captain-coach last year his leadership is something we need after losing guys like Dane O'Hehir and James Smart, who played huge leadership roles in the club.
"There is a big hole there to fill and while everyone knows about Nathan's talent but his leadership will be a big thing as well."
After travelling from Canberra this year, Aisea Taholo and Ryan McQueen are both not expected to be at the Tigers next year while Royce Tout is yet to commit to another season travelling to play for his junior club.
Berkrey is looking to strike the right balance.
"I think this year showed when we had a few injuries a lot of our local boys really shone through and I want to give those guys an opportunity while looking for one or two more to come in," he said.
