Sharp has joined the Eels football department after resigning as head coach of the Sharks earlier this year.
Former Cronulla Sharks head coach Peter Sharp has joined the Parramatta Eels football department, the club announced on Wednesday morning.
Sharp is a former assistant coach at the Eels and will oversee list management from NRL, NYC and junior squad alongside head coach Brad Arthur and football operations manager Daniel Anderson.
Sharp resigned as coach of the Cronulla Sharks in July in the week after the Todd Carney photo scandal.
Eels chief executive Scott Seward said Sharp’s experience and know-how will prove invaluable for the club.
“Having someone of Peter’s experience joining our football staff is going to be invaluable for us,” Seward said.
“He has a great rugby league mind and will bring a lot to our future recruitment and retention plans.”
Sharp said he was happy to return the the club where he was assistant coach three times in the past 20 years, and said the Parramatta area was an untapped gold mine for rugby league talent.
“I love the club, and I really think it’s on the improve, and I’m excited to take this role on as a new career development for me,” Sharp said.
“I think the talent in the Parramatta area is fantastic and untapped, and I’m looking forward to getting straight into things.”
