Tim Sheens has quit as Wests Tigers coach following a revolt from his players.
He reached a settlement with the club yesterday to walk away after 10 years at the helm.
Sheens told Tigers players and officials yesterday afternoon he was no longer going to be involved at the club, and speculation immediately turned to him possibly switching to the New Zealand Warriors.
It is understood Sheens reached a compromise payout agreement regarding the final two years of his contract.
A Tigers board meeting last night to decide Sheens' future was cancelled and the club is believed to be holding off on a formal announcement to allow Sheens to sort out a deal with the Warriors.
