And with the new season fast-approaching, Vesty admits he is eager to pass on his knowledge to the next generation of rugby stars.
He said: "I'm really excited. I think we're a club going in the right direction and since I've come in I've been really impressed with how Dean has got things running.
"I've always wanted to be a coach. I've always wanted the chance to work with young players and hopefully give them good ideas.
"I've learnt a lot from great coaches and players over the years so I will be aiming to pass that on to the academy boys and help some become quality first-team players."
Vesty is one of five new coaches appointed by Director of Rugby Dean Ryan and will split his time between working with the academy and first-team.
And the 31-year-old admits that progressing to the first-team is a big challenge for the youngsters.
He continued: "I am looking after the top end of the academy, trying to get those guys ready for first-team rugby and I will also be helping Shane Howarth out with the first-team backs.
"The step-up for academy players is tough in terms of the size and strength of first-team players, the speed of the game and the fact that the experienced guys are just a bit better at reading things.
"But hopefully I can get some of these guys to that level where they're playing in the first-team. And to the standard where they're not only making their debuts, but they're contributing consistently."
