Wests Tigers and coach Tim Sheens could part ways as early as today.
The Daily Telegraph understands a board meeting scheduled for tonight could end Sheens' 10-year reign at the Concord club.
Sheens has been under immense pressure since his side - NRL pre-season favourites - crashed out of contention before this year's NRL finals.
Wests Tigers sources hope Sheens can land the vacant New Zealand Warriors job to avoid having to sack him.
He still has another two years remaining on his contract but the Tigers hope an easy and financially-friendly settlement can be reached.
Peter Gentle and Nathan Brown have been mentioned as possible replacements but are unlikely to win the plum job. Mick Potter is another.
