    According to RLW today, Scott Penn had a meeting with Toovey recently and told him he has a lifetime job in football administration at the club, and that is the reason why Toovey hasn't been blowing up about Barrett coming

    How accurate that is, who knows, but hadn't seen it mentioned on here as yet

      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.

          Great way to combine his love of footy and the Bachelor of Business he did through UTS

            Is that life time while the Penns own the club?

            What happens when he sells the club to the chinese?

              Then Tooves will have Dim Sum for brunch everyday.
              The club will have $$$ galore.
              It's a win-win for everyone.

                  Or he could tell Penn & co to get stuffed and turn his back on the game.

                  I would if I was in his position.

                  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 :cool:

                  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 ? @:rolleyes:

                  I think ideally Toovey can coach the national side for a spell, and in about years time become the Manly CEO. One way or another the club must keep him in some capacity as he is a club legend full stop!

                    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.

                        What good would that do? 5/7 Penn majority means that there is no input at the very rarely held board meetings.:cool:

                        I would rather 2v get an ARLC seat, then he could help the Fans get their game back @:cool:

                            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.
