Former Wests Tigers premiership-winning coach Tim Sheens has returned to the club as its new head of football performance.
Sheens guided the Tigers to the 2005 grand final win and has taken up a new role at the club overseeing recruitment, pathways, football administration and club culture.
"Tim is revered as part of Wests Tigers' history and his appointment in this new role will make him a rich part of our future," Wests Tigers Chair Lee Hagipantelis said.
"In the history of the game, very few have enjoyed Tim's experience and gravitas and what he will be able to bring to Wests Tigers will greatly enhance the club and create opportunities to be the best that we can be."
The 70-year-old has also coached NSW and Australia, with 31 matches as Kangaroos coach.
"It's very pleasing to welcome Tim back to Wests Tigers and see him formally involved with the club again," Wests Tigers CEO Justin Pascoe said.
"Tim knows what it means to be Wests Tigers and has played a major role in shaping all aspects of this club — both on and off the field — to what it is today.
"Having Tim take on this new role will significantly strengthen our football department as a whole. We firmly believe that adding Tim's experience, knowledge and insight into the game of rugby league will be of huge benefit to Wests Tigers in ensuring sustainability in all aspects of the organisation."
