Warrington Wolves have announced that Richard Marshall will take on the club’s assistant coach role in 2023 working alongside former Castleford Tigers boss Daryl Powell.
Marshall will act as defensive coach with fellow Assistant Ryan Sheridan continuing as attack coach under Head Coach Daryl Powell. Danny Evans will take over the development of our Under 18s as Academy Head Coach.
The Warringtonian began his coaching career with the club and worked as Tony Smith’s Assistant Coach during our successful 2009, 2010 and 2012 Challenge Cup campaigns.
Marshall has also worked as Assistant Coach previously at St Helens as well as Head Coach of Salford Red Devils and Halifax Panthers.
He rejoined the Wire last season as Academy Head Coach and played an instrumental role in developing our young talents, which saw nine players awarded first team contracts for the new season.
Furthermore, Liam Myler has also moved up to become the club’s new Lead Strength and Conditioning Coach with Adam Gummerson taking the role of Academy Physiotherapist. Joining the Club are Ryan Conville as Sports Therapist, Ewan Atkinson as Lead Soft Tissue Therapist & Medical Admin and Tom Ashton as Sports Scientist.
Speaking on the progression to First Team Defensive Coach, Richard Marshall said: “It is a proud moment. We had a successful season with the academy last year and a lot of those lads have progressed into the first team, so it’s an honour and a privilege to continue working with them.
“From when I was first here, the likes of Stef [Ratchford] and Ben Currie are still here – they’ve had a big impact on my coaching career and vice versa. It’s been a bit surreal really – it doesn’t feel like I’ve ever been away. I’ve had a decent career outside of Warrington Wolves but to come back to my hometown team and help Daryl and Ryan was a really good opportunity and one I couldn’t turn down.”
