Brett Kimmorley joins Parramatta Eels

Brett Kimmorley has joined the Parramatta Eels coaching staff as the club searches for someone to mentor its halves.

Kimmorley, who has coached with Canterbury, Canberra, Wests Tigers and took the head coach gig at Western Suburbs in the Illawarra Coal League last year, will work with Corey Norman and Clint Gutherson for their 2017 campaign.

Fairfax Media reports Kimmorley has been brought in to assist the incumbent playmakers while Troy Dargan and Michael Doolan may also get a shot in first grade.

Kimmorley won a premiership with the Melbourne Storm and represented Australia and New South Wales in his playing career.
