McFadden to part ways with Warriors
Warriors assistant coach Andrew McFadden will leave the club at the end of the season.
McFadden joined the Warriors as an assistant in 2013 before spending almost three seasons as head coach from 2014-2016.
Unable to break the club’s playoff drought during that time, the former Raiders, Eels and Storm halfback was replaced by current coach Stephen Kearney, who kept McFadden on as one of his assistants.
But the man known as ‘Cappy’ has indicated that he wants to take his young family home to Canberra.
‘‘This is Cappy’s sixth year with us and he has given the club tremendous service,’’ said Warriors chief executive Cameron George.
‘‘We’d love to see him stay but he has a growing young family and it’s important to think about their future.
‘‘We can’t say enough about what Cappy has done for the club so far and there’s plenty more ahead this year before he finishes.’’
McFadden said his focus now is solely on the season ahead.
‘‘It was important to give Cameron, Stephen and the club plenty of notice about our plans to go home,’’ he said.
‘‘That’s for the future. All that matters now is what’s ahead of us this season.’’
Canberra-born McFadden was Warriors head coach for 67 matches.
