Senior personnel

Due to Paul Roos entering his final year as senior coach, there will be a reshuffle in coaching, whereby Roos' role will shift towards a focus on culture, so the transition to coach-in-waiting, Simon Goodwin, is as smooth as possible for 2017.[1] Goodwin is set to increase his responsibilities for the 2016 season to prepare him for becoming senior coach,[2] along with increased responsibility for development and strategy coach, Brendan McCartney, as the club increases its focus on development.[1] After the departure of development coach and game-day runner, Brad Miller,[3] to Greater Western Sydney to coach their NEAFL side,[4] 2015 retiree, Daniel Cross filled his position as development and rehabilitation coach, and game-day runner.[5]
