MAT Rogers has returned to the Titans in a coaching role.

Rogers retired from professional football in 2012 but today was announced as the iSelect Gold Coast Titans backs coach.

It's a new role for the club and Rogers, which will see him working with the club's young halves such as Jordan Rankin (21), Aidan Sezer (21), Albert Kelly (21) and Beau Henry (22).

Titans CEO David May said it was exciting to have Rogers return.

"Mat was an integral part of this club during those important first few years so to have such a professional person returning to the club in a new capacity is fantastic news," Mr May said.

"Given how much influence Mat had as a player in both codes, I'm sure he will be a welcomed contributor to our coaching staff."

Head coach John Cartwright said it was important to have his former five-eighth and centre returning to work with younger players.

"As a player, Mat had a great skill set and an energy that had a positive impact on his teammates so it's great that he will be back on board helping some of our younger players in a coaching capacity," Cartwright said.

"He knows what is required to perform at the top level, is familiar with how the club operates and already has a great relationship with many of the players and the coaching staff so it'll be great to have him involved with the playing group once again."

Rogers said he was eager to once again help contribute to the club he played 77 NRL games for from 2007-2011.

"Being involved with the Titans from the start, this club will always hold a special place in my heart," Rogers said.

"So to be returning in a new coaching role in what is an exciting new phase for the club makes it even more special.

"I'm looking forward to working with some of the younger guys and am really excited by the next challenge in my career."
