Brisbane Broncos get their man as Kevin Walters agrees to two-year deal in late-night signing

The Broncos have officially signed one of the club’s favourite sons in Kevin Walters to take the reins as head coach in 2021 after beating Paul Green to the coveted position.

The Courier Mail reported Walters will join the club on a $1 million two-year deal starting in 2021 after signing a deal to replace Anthony Seibold at 10pm on Tuesday night.

Walters has also backed plans for Storm super coach Craig Bellamy to join him in 2022 as the club’s coaching director when his Melbourne deal expires.

In the process of agreeing to the Broncos deal, Walters confirmed he has quit as Queensland Origin coach.

Walters texted Maroons players on Tuesday night to inform them of his decision.

The Broncos will announce Walters’ signing on Wednesday afternoon officially.

As speculated prior to his battle for the role with Paul Green, Walters will bring in a star-studded coaching staff to help him turn the club around after their worst ever season.

The Broncos won just three games to claim a historic wooden spoon with the club keen to put a stronger team around Walters than Anthony Seibold had at his disposal.
