Queensland Cup rugby league club Wynnum Manly have recruited former NSW Origin and NRL coach Graham Murray as their new chief executive.

Under new coach Paul Green the club have won five of their first eight games to be sitting fourth behind unbeaten front-runners North Devils.

The club believe Murray's expertise and wealth of knowledge of rugby league will provide a big boost on and off the football field.

Murray said he was looking forward to the challenge ahead after walking away from coaching in the NRL in 2008.

"I relish the opportunity to work in a new area of the game," said Murray in a statement released by Wynnum Manly's affiliate club Brisbane.

"While I am impressed with the club's football program, I look forward to using my values and experience in a manner that will enhance the club's performance and growth.

Murray coached five clubs, including the Leeds Rhinos in the UK, between 1991 and 2008.

His representative resume includes coaching Fiji in 2000 World Cup, City Origin (five times) and NSW Origin (six times).

Murray took Illawarra to its first finals series in 1992 but his finest moment was taking the North Queensland Cowboys to the 2005 NRL grand final which they lost to the Wests Tigers.
