Vodafone Warriors head coach Andrew McFadden said he hopes to be able to announce two new assistant coaches for the 2015 NRL season soon.

They will replace 2013-2014 assistant coach Ricky Henry and Adam Mogg, who joined the coaching staff soon after McFadden was appointed head coach in April this year.

“I’m hoping we’ll be able to make an announcement in the near future,” said McFadden.

“Ricky and Adam have both made great contributions and I’m grateful for all the support they provided.

“Adam has put his family first, which is only right. It hasn’t worked out for him with his family being back in Queensland so he has decided to head home.

“Ricky has been with the club for a while now and he really stepped up to take on more after I was appointed (head coach) this year. He has been terrific.”

McFadden said he was seeking experienced support staff.

“I’m a fairly inexperienced coach at this level and I recognised during the season that I need the support and advice of people who have been around coaching at the top level longer than I have been.”

While Mogg came on board as an assistant coach in May this year, Henry had been involved with the Vodafone Warriors in various roles since 2008.
