COACHES | Barry Harris


38 matches [1975-1976]

13 wins, 23 losses, 2 draws


Harris played in the Panthers first premiership match in 1967 and played 17 matches in total in the inaugural season.

He stayed on at the club post retirement from playing and was 1 part of the 4-man coaching panel introduced in the 1974 season.

When it was dissolved for the 1975 season, he was appointed the reserve grade coach whilst Mike Stephenson was appointed captain-coach. However, when Stephenson gave up the role 6 matches into the season, Harris was appointed first grade coach.

The Panthers would finish second last, and although he oversaw an improved team in 1976, he stood down at the end of that season.
