Scott Murray has been appointed the Hostplus Cup head coach at the Redcliffe Dolphins for season 2022.
Murray has been on the coaching staff at the club in different roles since 2017 in what was a successful year for the then-first year coach at the Dolphins.
The Redcliffe Under 20s team took out the statewide FOGS Under 20 competition with a win against Mackay Cutters, before backing up to claim the south-east Queensland FOGS Colts title with victory over Norths Devils prior to the two competitions combining into one format the following season.
Murray also served as an assistant to former Cup coach Adam Mogg and was part of the 2018 Intrust Super Cup premiership-winning coaching staff.
“We are very fortunate to have a coach of Scott’s calibre already at the club, he has extensive coaching experience at this level making him an ideal choice as head coach heading into such an exciting season for the club,” Redcliffe Dolphins head of football operations Grant Cleal said.
Murray, who is also the head of the Rugby League Excellence Program at Redcliffe State High, began in his new role in mid-November last year and will have the side working hard to see if they can end their 2022 campaign at the same place they will kick it off.
