    Has a coach in a current coaching role ever signed a contract to join another club a year out from his contract?

    This whole debacle kinda reminds me of Bennent leaving the Dragons.

    Yeh and look what happended to the dragons after Bennett announced he was going to the knights. They only won 4 more games the rest of the year.

    I fear what next year is going to be like

    Cleary announced he was leaving the warriors mid way through the season, didn't seem to effect them. My only concern with all this, like many, is how much talent are we going to lose. I wouldn't be surprised to see Trex sign a 1 year deal and then move to the dogs

    I googled it. Was for 2007 season. Both clubs announced the change before start of 2006 and there was some talk of swapping coaches before first game http://www.rleague.com/content/article.php?id=24641

    Good find mate... Well we all know how the Brian Smith side of it ended. Still Haslers signing is well over a year out. I just don't think it's right for the club.

    It raises the question as to why des approached the dogs in July this year when he knew he was under contract for 2012.

    Do coaches normally change teams 18 months in advance?

    The mole from RLW mentioned in August this year that a current NRL coach under contract for next year had approached the dogs about applying for their coaching role. Didn't realise that it was des untuil just recently.

    Apparantly it was on the moles twitter page on 31/8/2011
