The 43-year-old Revesby born coach then went to the Sharks, where was part of the staff as the club managed to win its first premiership in 2016.
Price then departed for England, where he has been ever since with the Warrington Wolves, turning himself into a top English Super League coach. While he has been unable to win a premiership, is first year in charge at Warrington saw the side make the grand final, ultimately falling to the Wigan Warriors.
Warrington did manage to take out the Challenge Cup in 2019 however, giving Price his one and only piece of silverware thus far as a head coach.
Fitzgibbon said Price's experience would prove valuable.
“I’m really looking forward to working with Steve,” Fitzgibbon said.
“While we’ve known each other for some time, the opportunity to work together is an exciting one. The experiences he’s gathered and his love for the area and club were hard to ignore.
“I thought Steve’s experience in the NRL and in the Super League as a head coach, added to the fact he was an assistant in the 2016 Sharks premiership, would be an asset for myself, Josh and Daniel and we look forward to pushing each other and developing as a coaching team."
