    Panthers Executive General Manager Phil Gould AM today met with coach Ivan Cleary and informed him the club has terminated the final year of his contract, effective immediately.

    "Ivan Cleary has done a tremendous job in his four years at the Panthers," Mr Gould said.

    "He has laid the foundation for the future and we are enormously grateful for his contribution to the club.

    "We wish Ivan, his wife Rebecca and his family all the very best for the future."

    The rumour is he (Ivan) wanted out to return to the Warriors...he obviously likes the look of RTS, Johnson, and Luke in the spine...can't blame him. The Panthers will more than likely promote Garth Brennan.

    Wonder if Ivan will be kicking the tenants out at Collaroy and returning to the Northern Beaches homeland? And what will this mean for his son?

    I must say I'm not that surprised. They certainly didn't build on the relative success of their 2014 season, this season.

    They should talk to the Walker brothers. I'd love to see them get an NRL gig.

    I am very surprised by this
    At the GF and week 1 of the finals I got to speak to him he seemed very settled at Penrith and was looking forward to coaching this year with them.

    I was able to speak to him as he and his wife was sitting in the members stand near where I was.

    I know he has had a tough run of injuries with his players but I don't think he should of been sacked.

    I just wish TB was not hear can you imagine 2V's and Ivan as a coaching duo would be lethal!!

    Wouldn't be surprised if it's back to the Warriors with their recent struggles

    Penns, Peters take note.

    That is how you announce a change in a way that does not demean or divide.

    Faark! Who'd be a coach? One average year and there's the door - what happened to the five year plan?
    I suppose the term "career coach" is changing to "I'll coach anywhere".
    You'd like to think it's like a player getting released, he's most likely got something lined up and that coach hasn't been told yet.

    Excellent! So there is still a chance the Walker boys could get the job! ;)
