Wallace was at the helm of the Panthers NSW Cup side during their 2022 season, when they were part of incredible club success. In addition to that team winning the NSW Cup and State Championship, the Panthers also won the NRL, SG Ball and Jersey Flegg competitions in 2022, while the Harold Matthews team also made the finals.
Wallace is a former Panthers' player who retired at the end of 2018, and is rated as one of the better up and coming coaches in the game.
The shoes he has to fill of Ciraldo will be significant, with the new Bulldogs' coach chased for an NRL over the past few years.
“Peter and Ben are both impressive coaches who will add a lot to our coaching staff and playing group through their relationships, knowledge and work ethic,” Panthers Rugby League CEO Matt Cameron said in a statement.
“Peter has been a valuable member of the Panthers for many years now and I'm excited to see him progress to the next stage of his coaching career.
“Ben joins the club with a lot of coaching experience, and I look forward to welcoming him to the club ahead of the 2023 pre-season.”
Taking Wallace's place at the helm of the NSW Cup side will be Ben Harden.
