Manly Warringah Sea Eagles is pleased to officially announce Anthony Seibold as their new NRL Head Coach for the next three years.

Seibold will be supported by new Assistant Coaches in Shane Flanagan and Jim Dymock, who have also agreed to three-year deals.

The appointment of Seibold sees him back at Brookvale after working as an Assistant Coach at the Sea Eagles in 2016.

Seibold makes his return to the NRL Head Coaching ranks after previously being Head Coach of the Brisbane Broncos and the South Sydney Rabbitohs. He was named the Dally M Coach of the Year in 2018.

He also worked as an Assistant Coach at Melbourne Storm and South Sydney, as well as the Queensland State of Origin team. Seibold has recently worked as an Assistant Coach at England Rugby under Eddie Jones.

Flanagan coached Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks in 185 games over eight seasons, winning the NRL Premiership in 2016. He worked at St George-Illawarra as an Assistant Coach in 2020.

A former premiership winning player, Dymock has worked as an Assistant Coach at the Sydney Roosters, Canterbury, Cronulla, and the Gold Coast Titans.

Sea Eagles CEO Tony Mestrov said the appointments signal a new beginning for the Club.

“Anthony has an incredible knowledge of the game and what is required at the highest level,’’ Mestrov said.
