Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs CEO Todd Greenberg says they will go through an “exhaustive” and “time-consuming” process before appointing Kevin Moore’s successor.
With the prized coaching gig rumoured to be a two-horse race between Ricky Stuart and Nathan Brown, Greenberg said he had not even spoken to another coach yet and would interview up to 10 potential targets before making a recommendation to the board.
Moore last week walked out for the rest of the season after being told he would not have the job next year.
“A decision could be months away,” Greenberg said. “Nothing at all has been decided and it won’t be for quite some time.”
With players still coming to terms with Moore’s departure, Greenberg revealed that his inbox had been flooded with expressions of interest from well-qualified candidates.
The Daily Telegraph understands that former Souths coach Jason Taylor and Penrith Panthers caretaker coach Steve Georgallis are among those who will be seeking an interview for the role.
“And there is no shortage of quality candidates,” Greenberg said. “Some of the people we will certainly consider are Nathan Brown, Mick Potter, Terry Matterson, Rick Stuart and Steve Georgallis.”
Former Dragons coach Brown has been strongly linked to the role but both Greenberg and the Huddersfield coach’s manager George Mimis denied that any discussions had taken place.
Mimis did reveal, however, that Brown had an NRL get-out clause in his three-year contract with the Huddersfield Giants and would strongly consider the move if he was approached.
