Brisbane Broncos have confirmed that Anthony Seibold will be the club’s new head coach for 2020 and beyond.

Seibold was endorsed by the Broncos’ board after a thorough selection process led by chairman Karl Morris, director Darren Lockyer and chief executive Paul White.

Former South Wales Scorpions boss Seibold will begin a four-year contract in 2020, with Wayne Bennett commited to seeing out his final year as Brisbane coach next season.

On the appointment of Seibold, Morris said: “We have been through a robust process and interviewed a number of high-calibre coaches.

“Anthony was a standout. His football knowledge is exceptional, as is his thinking and process around people management.

“He also has a strong commitment that will add to the commercial and community aspects of our club, which is extremely important to the Brisbane Broncos.”

Seibold is set to stay as South Sydney Rabbitohs head coach next year.
