News of the appointment comes a week after the club announced its decision to go part-time following a major reduction in central funding.
Broncos owner David Hughes said: “As we enter this period of change for the London Broncos, it was vital that we found the right coach to lead our squad of young players into the Betfred Championship for 2022 and I feel that we have found the ideal man in Jermaine.
“I have no doubt he will use his knowledge of the lower divisions and part-time environments to help us create a strong group of players that care passionately about playing for the London Broncos.
“We will of course give Jermaine all of the support he needs to get the club back on the right track after the disappointment of this season.”
We are delighted to announce Jermaine Coleman as our Head Coach for 2022.

Coleman, who has coached League 1 club Skolars since 2015, said: “I’m very excited to be given the opportunity to work with the London Broncos. We have a fantastic crop of young players who I can’t wait to start working with.
“It’s important to me that we have players who care about the club and want to see it back where we belong in Super league.
“Having players from London playing for London is important to our identity, we need to use that identity to create a winning culture within the group. We must build the club on the right foundations and we start that building project now focussing on developing our own talent and I can’t wait to get started. I’d also like to say thank you to London Skolars for the time I have had them there and wish them every success moving forward.”
