Melbourne Storm has today announced the return of Premiership player and State of Origin representative, Tim Glasby, after being appointed as Recruitment Officer and Pathways Manager.
Having called time on his 138-game career in 2020, Glasby replaces the outgoing Dane Campbell who has taken on a role with North Queensland Cowboys and will join Recruitment Manager, Paul Bunn, and his recruitment team on the Sunshine Coast.
Glasby began his NRL career at Storm in 2012 playing in three Grand Finals, including the 2017 Premiership, a World Club Challenge victory in 2018 and picked up five caps for the Maroons before joining Newcastle Knights in 2018.
“I’m really excited to be back at the Club that first gave me a chance to play NRL back in 2012,” Glasby said.
“I had a great time as a player here over six seasons and I’m now looking forward to coming back in a new and different role for me. It’s a great challenge but I have some great people to learn from and a great system at Storm that has delivered so much success over the years.”
Storm General Manager Football, Frank Ponissi, said that in addition to finding the next generation of quality junior players, Glasby will be responsible for overseeing the Storm Scholarship Program and Talent Squads, which over the years has produced a host of NRL players for the Club.
“We know from his six years at the Club, Tim is an outstanding character who always conducted himself in an extremely professional and highly respected manner,” Ponissi said.
“We are delighted to have Tim back at Melbourne Storm and we have no doubt he will add great value to our recruitment and development programs.”
Glasby will start his new role in late November and will be based in Storm’s recruitment offices at Sunshine Coast Stadium.
