Pryce said: “I’m already well aware of how much has been achieved by those before us, and am excited by what we can achieve as a new club with new people. I look forward to working with Brad and linking up with the players in preparation for next season.”
The 35-year-old, who weighed over 120kg and stands at 6 foot 7, had a spell in rugby union with Gloucester but played just three times before returning to the 13-a-side code ahead of the 2009 Super League season.
Pryce eventually retired at the end of the 2016 season after making 77 appearances for Dewsbury.
