Former rugby league coach Brian Smith has agreed to join the backroom staff at the Brumbies.

Smith has spent his entire coaching career in the 13-a-side code, having worked at Illawarra Steelers, St George Dragons, Parramatta Eels, Newcastle Knights and Sydney Roosters in Australia and Hull FC and Bradford Bulls in England.

However following his dismissal from the Roosters, he will now take over the defensive coaching duties with the Brumbies.

"It is great to have someone of Brian's experience and skillset join the Brumbies coaching staff," said Brumbies head coach Jake White.

"Brian will consult to the Brumbies and provide structured support around our defensive line and tackling."

Smith added: "The opportunity to work with a talented young squad was very appealing.

"The Brumbies have put in place a first class programme, and I hope that I will be able to contribute to success in 2013."
