I think Des just likes to appoint assistants who he has history with. He just appointed Monas again as assistant for his new gig on the Gold Coast. Also Brett Stewart was brought back into the fold as an assistant when Des came back for a second stint at Manly.There was a lot of talk when we signed Siebold that one of the reasons Penn did not like des was that he never appointed assistants with any promise or experience. There was a lot of talk about how good siebold is surround himself with such experience.
Well Flanagan was gone to the dragons after about eight games and dymock has lasted just one season.
I can’t understand the sudden interest in who the assistant coaches are at the club,or any club for that matter.At the end of the day,it’s the head coach that takes the fall or the glory if they win,so it should only matter to him who his assistants are as he’s the one who has to work with them.I’m sure if I thought hard enough I could remember,but at this point,I can’t recall,or care for that matter,who Des’ assistants were in his premiership years and does anyone really think Fulton had assistants that made big decisions under his watch.As you said,Flanagan and Dymock didn’t improve the team,despite what Rothfield says about FlanaganFlanagan and Dymock didn't improve the team, did they? So who cares?
