While Bradford Bulls’ interim head coach Lee Greenwood and football consultant Brian Noble wait to find out their exact roles under new boss Eamon O’Carroll for 2024, a couple of other Betfred Championship coaches have made big moves into Super League.

Having first been linked with the role a few months ago, Halifax’s outgoing head coach Simon Grix has officially become Tony Smith’s assistant at Hull FC for 2024.

And former Keighley head coach Craig Lingard, having departed Batley following an impressive four-year spell in charge, has a bigger challenge than he had bargained for at Castleford.

He joined the Tigers as assistant earlier this year, while remaining in the top job at the Bulldogs until the end of 2023.

Lingard had initially applied for the top job at Cas this spring, but lost out to Andy Last, who subsequently appointed him as his number two.

But Last was sacked in August with his side bottom of Super League and replaced by Danny Ward until the end of the season.

Ward kept Cas up, but the club have backed Lingard to take them forward on a two-year deal.

He will be assisted by Leeds legend Danny Maguire, who joins the club on a two-year contract.
