He takes over the job vacated earlier this summer by James Ford, who has now become the interim head coach at Featherstone following Long’s sacking on Monday!
Trinity head coach Mark Applegarth has welcomed Long to his staff.
He said: “I’m delighted to have Sean on the coaching staff for the remaining six games and next season.
“He brings a wealth of experience with him and I think he will add real value to our coaching and playing group.
"I feel like we will compliment each other well.”
Long says he is thrilled to be joining Wakefield at such a crucial point for them in the season with the big game against Castleford Tigers next up.
He added: “We had a good chat about what Mark felt I could bring to the club.
“Wakefield are now firmly in the business end of the season and every performance counts.
"I can’t wait to get out on the field with Mark and the team.”
