New Suns Coach Announced

IT’S OFFICIAL – The Gold Coast SUNS have this afternoon announced Rodney Eade will join the club as senior coach.

The decision comes as no surprise with rumours flapping around for weeks.

Eade, who has coached 314 games with the Sydney Swans and Western Bulldogs Football Clubs, joins the GC SUNS from the Collingwood Football Club, where he held the position of Director of Football.


The GC SUNS Chairman said Eade’s arrival at the club capped off a strong month for the SUNS, having appointed Andrew Travis as CEO, and welcomed Sydney Swans premiership player Nick Malceski and Hawk, Mitch Hallahan.

The new coach will face the media tomorrow at Metricon Stadium.
