The former Sixer is ready to get Adelaide back to the promise land.  

“I’m super excited to be back. 14 years ago I was out of the NBL completely, so to return as coach of the club I love, where I have had a 40-year association, is a dream come true,” he said.

“The last 15 games were something of an audition for me and proved to me that I still have the hunger to compete and win”. 

“For all of us, the hard work starts now.”

Ninnis has been extended until the end of NBL26.
