Warriors trainer Craig Walker is leaving the club and returning to the Sydney Roosters.

The Warriors confirmed this today.

Walker has been the subject of much speculation at the Warriors in the washup to their disappointing season where their preseason work came under the spotlight.

The Warriors said they and Walker had reached "mutual agreement" over a release from his contract. He has been with the club since 2005.

"Craig's returning home to the Eastern Suburbs in Sydney with his family in time for the preseason. We thank Craig and wish him all the best in the future," Warriors CEO Wayne Scurrah said.

The Warriors haven't named a replacement and that will now be a priority for new coach Matthew Elliott who was only appointed last Friday.
