MELBOURNE Storm general manager of game development Greg Brentnall has praised the Mackay Cutters for signing Kim Williams, declaring he is more than ready to head the Queensland Cup side.

Brentnall said the Storm high-performance manager would bring with him a strong work ethic and was someone who had the ability to develop strong relationships with his players.

"I think Kim will be a great asset to the Cutters," Brentnall said from Melbourne.

"He's the type of coach who puts in the hard yards and he is definitely a players' coach.

"He's someone who really gets to know the workings and personalities of those he coaches.

"He has a knack of getting the best out of young players and that's key for a place like Mackay, where there are players coming through the system who are looking to further themselves."

Brentnall said Williams possessed an extensive coaching background, which he had utilised at the Storm, with a lot of success during his four years at the club.

"Kim's got an extensive history in the game and for the last number of years he has headed our high-performance programs in Victoria," Brentnall said. "He's taken our SG Ball side to a great deal of success, he has a strong work ethic and a very well-credentialed background, after coaching in Western Australia, South Australia and prior to that, the South Coast of New South Wales.

"His main strength is that he has got the same work ethic as everybody has, that currently everyone has to have, to work within the Storm system. We fully understand he has been searching for a chance like that at the Cutters and I feel he'll have a lot of success."

During his high-performance role with the Storm, Williams also mentored other aspiring coaches, oversaw a range of coaching programs and gained further experience in physical and game-day preparation.

Williams starts his role on November 1.
