lots of talk about getting rid of barrett, and bringing in random ex-Manly players just because they played for us etc. So - let's put our business and HR hats on for a minute and ask ourselves - which young players should we be grooming to one day become NRL coaches (preferably for manly) in the future? There is actually a niche opportunity here - Manly could become the 'club of choice' for young players because of the investment made in their post-playing career by having a structured NRL Coaching program..... A mixture of business smarts, health and conditioning, coaching & leadership training, people skills, tactics and thought leadership etc etc etc. And of course good hair ala Barrett To me, there are some prime candidates who could one day take over our great club at various levels: Jamie Lyon - geez I would love to see him coach our 20's team in 5 years time once he has a break and gets some skills refined. Not your typical first grade coach, but think about what he could do for our juniors? Jake T - already coaching the juniors at Mona Vale. I am not convinced he is on track to be an immortal - but happy to see him become our new generation Jason King. get him upskilled on the finer points of leadership and management asap DCE - obvious choice. I think he will be a better coach than he is a player tbh..... but time will tell. This is something I firmly believe in from the point of view of general management and leadership programs in the corporate environment (can you tell I am involved in this space???) But in all seriousness - why don't we have a Manly Leadership Academy? Partnering with Mac uni or some such organisation?
