"I am really excited to be back." 

The Titans have welcomed back one of their own, in former player and Tweed Heads Seagulls legend, Brad Davis, who has joined the club coaching ranks in a full-time capacity.

Davis played six games for the Titans in 2008 and had a decorated career playing for the Tweed Heads Seagulls in the Intrust Super Cup (formerly Queensland Cup).

Davis famously captained the victorious 2007 Queensland Cup premiers for the Seagulls - the first time a team from New South Wales had won the competition.

Davis was also named five-eighth and captain of the team of 20 years in 2015 and widely regarded as one of the best to have played in the competition.

"It was a long time ago back in 2008 (being at the Titans), but it is really exciting and really great to get an opportunity to be back at the club. Davis said.

Of his new role, Davis said he will be working with players as they transition between NRL and the Intrust Super Cup squads.

"I have come on board  as the NRL Assistant and Transition Coach, so I will be overseeing those guys that are not playing NRL and going back to the Intrust Super Cup and playing with our feeder clubs in Burleigh Bears and Tweed Heads Seagulls.

"(The players) are extremely excited and it is really important for them after missing out on all of the footy last year and they are jumping out of their skin and really hoping to play a lot of games this year and push themselves further up the pecking order.

Davis has come through the Titans programs, working with the JTS (Junior Titans System) programs as well as being a teacher at Palm Beach Currumbin, one of the club's affiliate schools.

"They are two really great organisations (Titans & Palm Beach Currumbin). PBC has helped me develop as a coach and along the way you do build really good relationships with the young players who have progressed up into the Titans squad.

And where does Davis see himself fitting in amongst the current coaching staff?

"The two Jimmys (Dymock and Lenihan) are more the characters, along with Justin (Holbrook), so I am just finding my way there and I am really stoked to be learning off some great experienced heads in rugby league, who have been around the game for a long time.

"I am learning plenty and that is a big goal of mine at the moment, to put my head down and get on board with the systems in place."
