The Cronulla Sharks have announced the appointment of John Morris and Jim Dymock for 2018 as assistant coaches to head coach Shane Flanagan.

They will replace the departing James Shepard and Steve Price who left to explore other coaching opportunities.

Dymock quit the Bulldogs earlier this month after Dean Pay was appointed to replace Des Hasler, and John Morris coached the under 20's Cronulla side in 2017, excelling into the assistant coach for the first-grade side.

"I've worked with Jimmy before and look forward to renewing our association next season," Flanagan said.

"He has great knowledge of the game, has an astute football mind and an excellent coaching background," Flanagan told

"As for John Morris, I’ve seen how hard he works as a player and then over the past two seasons as a coach.

"He has had some outstanding results with our NYC team and with developing our young players and he will be a great asset to our NRL coaching team."
