Sheens named kangaroos coach Mark Jones, saying he could see his client playing a significant role in the Bombers' revival.
"Kangaroos coach Mark Jones is very well respected in Melbourne. He is regarded as a very honest person and he will bring in an extra level of professionalism and knowledge of the game to the team," sheens said.
"While there are plenty of clubs that have hired experienced coaches who can coach, this will be a new way of playing for KAP."
Dodgers head coach Bruce Farrell said the team was fortunate to land the 30-year-old, who had been working in football abroad.
"He is a great young man, has been a big influence in recruiting young players as well as making his mark with the football program and he will have that long-term contract that will give him the opportunity to continue the coaching of the team," Farrell said.
"He will be invaluable to the development of young players and his experience and knowledge will help the Bombers' young players gain a wider view of the game."
Hines will fill the role immediately until the 2018 season, with the club promising he will be a consistent presence in goal.
"I want to thank the club for the opportunity to come and join the football fraternity in Melbourne, I feel the team's success will be enhanced by the confidence I am playing in," he said.
"I want to thank the club and the coaches, they did a great job and were extremely kind and honest with me."
Hines' long-term contract with the club expires next season.
