The Gold Coast Titans have released assistant coach Rohan Smith from his duties to take up the post of head coach at Bradford Bulls in England.

It is the club his father Brian took into the inaugural summer Super League season in 1996, also reaching the Challenge Cup final for the first time in half a century, before returning to begin Parramatta's successful era from 1997.

"I see the appointment as a real privilege and something I have been working towards for a while after doing a long apprenticeship," Smith told

"I have fond memories of Bradford Bulls and the crowd at Odsal when my father was coaching there and being part of the rebuilding phase of what has been a great traditional club.

"I really appreciate the Titans allowing me to take up the position and I leave with nothing but fond memories from my time here with such a great group of players, staff and people."
