Previous Club:
Melbourne Storm, Sydney Roosters
Goulburn, NSW

Having served a lengthy apprenticeship during his time in the Melbourne Storm and Sydney Roosters systems, Adam O’Brien has a deep understanding for the game and management of players.

After serving his 11-year apprenticeship at the Storm, O'Brien moved to the Sydney Roosters to work alongside Trent Robinson in 2019.

O’Brien joined the Knights in 2020 and found instant success, with his side's focus on defence a key factor in returning the Knights to the finals for the first time since 2013.

The Head Coach also led the Club to a second consecutive finals series in 2021, an 18-year first for the Knights.

In 2023, O'Brien led the Knights to fifth spot on the ladder which included a 10-game winning streak heading into the finals.

O’Brien is committed to the Knights until at least the end of the 2024 NRL season.
