Retired Collingwood premiership captain Nick Maxwell has joined the Melbourne Storm as the club’s leadership development coach.
Maxwell will work alongside Storm coach Craig Bellamy to oversee the club’s emerging leadership program on a part-time basis.
“I’ve always had a lot of respect for the Melbourne Storm as an organisation,” Maxwell said in a statement.
“To work with Craig, Cameron Smith and their Leadership group, as well as some of the most talented emerging leaders in the game is something I am really looking forward to.”
Storm football director Frank Ponissi said he was ecstatic to have Maxwell join the club.
“We are really excited to have Nick as part of Melbourne Storm’s staff. He enjoyed an outstanding career at Collingwood and has a reputation as one the best leaders in sport,” Ponissi said.
“He understands young men having lead a similar group during his time at Collinwood, particularly during his five years as captain, and will help us grow our next group of Storm leaders.
“Nick’s story of persistence, hard work and selflessness is something we see as important lessons our players will benefit from.”
