It'll be a hard choice for Tooves if he loves the coaching gig.
Stay with us in an admin role and he may never get another shot at coaching.
I'd love him to be around our club his whole working life but if he wants to coach, I hope he gets a go somewhere.

2V s getting forced from a job he wanted, so he is in no position to blow up about Barrett, Ceo recruiting his old mates or anything tangible in fact
He loves Manly so he may consider an admin role. But as its not the CEO position, what can he realistically do with a single ownership model ?
I don't see Toovey as the busted-ex-footy-player type that depends on his old club to keep him afloat.
He has obvious abilities as well as qualifications and experience in other areas. He's done OK in the media too.
I could see him taking a role in the club in future, but not just any role. Maybe one day he might fill the role Bozo has just been given.

I'm sure there would be plenty of job opportunities available to him but I hope he stays at the club. He not only loves the club but he loves the fans as well, combine those qualities with his business acumen and you have one hell of an administrator or future CEO.

The writing is on the wall for Tooves as coach, and I must say, I can see why. I love Tooves and he's a Manly legend, but I'm not convinced he's up to NRL coaching. However, I'd hope the club would at least offer to look after him some way, whether that's an admin job, Bozo getting him the Kangaroos gig, whatever. He may reject it, but I think the club should offer something. He may well turn out to be a great rep coach, plenty of coaches have succeeded at rep level but failed at club level and vice versa. Meninga had a terrible record as club coach, but a great one with Qld. I even think Sticky did ok at rep level, but I wouldn't want him coaching Manly.
