Salford prop Jordan James will join Wigan’s coaching staff at the end of the season.
James, who previously had a brief stint with Wigan in 2006, said: “Wigan is a massive club and to be offered a chance to work for them was an easy decision to make.
“They are the best at what they do and to learn under their coaching structure as an aspiring coach is the best opportunity you can possibly have.
“I’m looking forward to learning all the key attributes and high values and professionalism that Wigan are so famously known for and using my experience and playing career to help develop some possible Wigan stars of the future.”
A former Marine, James has played for Sheffield, Castleford, Widnes and Crusaders earlier in his career.
