Gary Murray’s retirement from rugby league has come at a great cost to the Gilda franchise.
The Gilda and former Gabba player is leaving the club after nine seasons in charge of the side and the club’s official Twitter account posted an announcement on Monday morning that the 33-year-old would be stepping down from the position.
The club released a statement saying Murray would be retiring at the end of the season, but Murray will not be coaching the side in 2018.
Murray played for the Giggons from 2005 to 2013 and won the premiership in 2013, but is the first Gilda player to leave the club since 2010.
Gilda have also announced that former captain and former captain Jack Gunston will take over as their chief executive officer.
