McDermott has agreed an ongoing deal with the Rhinos instead of a traditional coaching or playing contract, which the reigning Super League champions claim is the first in professional sport.

"This is recognition of Brian's ability, of what he's achieved so far and the diverse role he has within the club," chief executive Gary Hetherington said.
