Mick Crawley Re-Signs as Assistant Coach

The Canberra Raiders Coaching staff has received some good news, with Mick Crawley agreeing to extend his tenure as Raiders Assistant Coach.

Crawley had been Assistant Coach at the club previously under Neil Henry and arrived back in the ACT at the beginning of the 2015 season, after stints with the Cowboys and Knights.

Crawley said the direction the club was heading and the professional nature of the organisation were factors in his extension.

“There’s stability at the club and with the playing group we have it’s exciting to sign on for a bit longer,” Crawley said. “The opportunity to stay and be a part of the club is what helped my decision, we’ve got a wonderful playing group who have bought in to what Ricky’s about. We showed last year we have potential and we’re heading the same way this year.

“Working with Ricky and Dean Pay has been wonderful for me and the playing group is buying in which is important,” he said. “It’s a very professional club and I enjoy living in Canberra so it was a fairly easy decision for me.”
