Former Brisbane and Queensland halfback Allan Langer has stepped down from an assistant coaching role with the Broncos.
Langer will take on an ambassadorial role with the NRL club after being an assistant at Red Hill since 2008.
The diminutive Langer, who led the Broncos to their first premiership in 1992, said he had no desire to further his coaching career and was looking forward to taking on a more relaxed role.
He added the move will give him more time to dedicate to an ambassadorial role he already holds with the Queensland Former Origin Greats organisation as well as development work he assists Queensland coach Mal Meninga with in Papua New Guinea.
“I always enjoyed the camaraderie and I loved playing, but certainly coaching was never my forte,” Langer told News Limited.
“I spoke to ‘Hook’ (Anthony Griffin, coach) after the season during our review.
“The last off-season I did some corporate work and missed the pre-season so it’s been pretty much happening for 12 months.”
Griffin paid tribute to Langer but the club have not announced who, if anyone, will replace Langer on the coaching staff.
