Anthony Griffin
Two year extension

The Brisbane Broncos today announce that Anthony Griffin has accepted an offer to be the club’s long-term coach and that negotiations with any other coach, including Wayne Bennett, have been completed.

Griffin has accepted a two-year extension of his current contract, that will cover the 2012 and 2013 NRL seasons.

The move came after negotiations with Bennett were concluded last night.

Griffin, who has been head coach since replacing Ivan Henjak in February, said he was pleased to have secured an elongated tenure.

“It’s an honour to be officially endorsed as the next head coach of the Brisbane Broncos,” he said.

“Whichever way this turned out I was comfortable with the process the club went through and was always looking forward to a future with the club.

“I will now get on with the job of making the rest of the season as successful as possible.”
