The Gold Coast Titans are set to have a board meeting next Monday, as scrutiny mounts over the position of Titans head coach Garth Brennan.
It comes after a poor season thus far from the Titans, with the side currently sitting 15th on the ladder after 15 games. Overall, the Titans coach has 12 wins from his 39 games at the helm.
Brennan originally had a performance-related clause in his contract, which stipulated that the 47-year-old needed to make finals.
However, Titans executives decided to remove the clause after seeing promising signs in the Titans’ pre-season, extending Brennan’s contract until the end of the 2020 season.
The Mal Meninga review into the club is also due soon, which could potentially influence the outcome of Brennan’s tenure at the Gold Coast.
Meninga has spent the last six weeks interviewing players and staff as part of the review.
According to Fox Sports‘ James Hooper, Meninga’s review is expected to be “comprehensive”, and “designed to shift the club off a consistent theme of underachievement.”
The 59-year-old is also believed to have probed the Titans’ pathways and youth development, from its juniors through to the NRL system.
An array of names have been floated as possible replacements for Brennan, should the Titans decide to let him go.
Queensland coach Kevin Walters had been raised as one of the major contenders.
The Titans’ board meeting next Monday could certainly be a big day for the Gold Coast, and for Brennan himself.
