OFFICIAL: HASLER SACKED & SEIBOLD NEW COACH

Yeah, Nah.

Des Hasler officially sacked as Manly Sea Eagles coach following board meeting​

The turmoil at the Manly Sea Eagles has finally been dealt with as coach Des Hasler’s reign at the club has come to a bitter end.

Manly have made the decision to sack coach Des Hasler.

His manager, George Mimis, has been informed of the Sea Eagles’ decision after the board met on Thursday morning where they decided to part ways with the club legend. Lawyers are drawing up the termination paperwork today, after which, Anthony Seibold will be installed as Manly’s next coach.

Hasler agreed to a raft of measures placed on him by Sea Eagles hierarchy in a bid to see our the final year of his contract but that won’t happen.

It is expected Hasler will pursue legal action against his former club.

He leaves Manly with the second most coached games in the club’s history and a two time premiership winner.

Hasler had on Wednesday indicated his willingness to stick around and coach in 2023 and was willing to work alongside Seibold.

It came just a day after explosive emails obtained by The Daily Telegraph indicated his own football department signed off on the rainbow jersey months before the controversy tore apart the NRL team.

The Sea Eagles’ roster remains largely unchanged for 2023 so far, with only Wests Tigers back-rower Kelma Tuilagi joining the club.

Kieran Foran (Gold Coast), Dylan Walker (New Zealand), Martin Taupau (unsigned) and Andrew Davey (Canterbury have departed the club.

The club has high hopes on junior talent coming through, headlined by Bob Fulton’s grandson Zac Fulton, Jamie Humphreys, Gordon Chan Kum Tong and Jacob Sykes.

If the club is looking to rely on the caliber of those players to save us, we are well and truly ****ed.

Certainly sheds light on the Penn post meeting interview yesterday

The way this has handled is very very average.

Like many I could understand the need for change (although I think the constraints and nature of how Des was given the role such as KPI's etc really inhibited his performance rather than improve it. As an example the moment Tommy went down with an injury we all knew last year was cactus and it would have been a good time to blood the kids / experiment however the nature of his KPI's limited any long term thinking) but the way this has been handled has been, live everything with the Penn era, poorly executed.
