Sydney - Former All Blacks centre Daryl Gibson will join the Waratahs coaching team next season under new head coach Michael Cheika, team officials said on Monday.

Gibson, 37, a former Crusaders' assistant coach, helped guide the Crusaders to the 2011 Super Rugby final, securing semi-finals places in 2009, 2010 and 2012, having previously won four titles as a player.

Cheika said Gibson would help bring continuity in attack for the Waratahs next Super Rugby season.

"To enact the change we want to make here, we need to change everything. I wanted someone fresh," Cheika said.

"Darryl has excellent skills in the areas we wish to improve, in the continuity of attack and around the ruck.

"He has great experience of Super Rugby and in that sense his experience is a good complement for mine and (assistant coach) Alan Gaffney."

Gibson played 19 Tests for the All Blacks between 1999 and 2002, including the 1999 Rugby World Cup and made a team record 78 appearances for the Crusaders in Super Rugby between 1996 and 2002.
