    Cooper Cronk will not be lost to the Sydney Roosters in retirement with the premiership-winning halfback joining their coaching staff.

    The back-to-back premiers announced Cronk has signed on to be a part-time specialist halves coach and will work with every playmaker coming through Roosters system next year.

    Cronk, 35, retired following the NRL grand final after a third consecutive premiership with the Roosters and Storm.

    The Tricolours have signed former Cronulla playmaker Kyle Flanagan as a replacement for the two-time Dally M medallist.

    He's likely to partner premiership-winner Luke Keary in the halves with Lachlan Lam another option for Roosters coach Trent Robinson.

    "I have spoken previously about what the Roosters have made possible for me over the last couple of years, and I’m excited to remain involved with the club in this new role," Cronk said in a statement on Thursday.

    "There are some great young kids coming through the ranks at the Roosters and I’m looking forward to working with them."

    Cronk will officially begin his new role when the Roosters return to pre-season training midway through November.

    Robinson said Cronk's expertise would be valuable for the side's quest for a third consecutive title in 2020.

    "Cooper's experience and football nous is unmatched and it’s great to have him on board in this role where he will pass on his knowledge and work on the development of our halves across all grades at the club," Robinson said.


    No wonder they don't have to use third party deals at the club. Just another ex rooster to join the gravy train.

    Nice and cosy arrangements. Yeah was getting paid a million per season, free education and now a cushy job at the Roosters post footy.

    Bet the fees were paid by the Chooks straight into Cronks account.

    You can't blame them for making a decision like this. From all I've heard he's forged his career on the back of hard work throughout his career. If he can install that same work ethic in the juniors the Roosters continually scalp he'll provide great service to them for a while yet.

    There's a good chance that this job was promised in order to induce him to move there in the first place. But it's not like he's the only player to have been influenced this way. I recall that when Vagana left to join the Sharks, part of the deal was a traineeship as a carpenter. There are probably many other examples of this kind of deal.

    Apart from the paper bags.. Having Cronk on coaching staff will strengthen their recruitment pitch ..

    I can see him being a gun coach in the future, from what I’ve heard he studies the game religiously.

    He's going to be a massive asset working with Kyle Flannagan and then Sam Walker.
