Developing Danny Buderus as a head coach in his own right will be one of Nathan Brown’s chief objectives when he takes over the top job at Newcastle ahead of the 2016 NRL season.
Brown was confirmed as the new Knights coach on Thursday. He will succeed Rick Stone who was sacked earlier this year. Buderus has since filled in as caretaker coach and has helped to reinvigorate the club over the last two months.
The Knights see club legend Buderus as a future NRL mentor and chief executive Matt Gidley said Brown will be charged with the responsibility of maturing the former representative hooker in his clipboard holding duties.
“I think everything our club stands for is embodied in Danny and everyone respects what he has done in the last seven weeks,” Gidley said.
