Mick Potter - Incumbent coach.
David Kidwell - Current assistant coach.
Todd Payten - Current assistant coach.
Kevin Walters - Current assistant coach under Wayne Bennett and Newcastle Knights.
Matt Parish - Currently unemployed. Former assistant coach at Manly, Parramatta and Canberra. Former head coach Salford.
Brian Smith - Currently some sort of coaching gypsy. Former head coach at multiple clubs.
John Cartwright - Currently unemployed. Former head coach of Gold Coast Titans.
Anthony Griffin - Current head coach Brisbane Broncos. Off contract.
Matt Elliott - Former head coach at multiple clubs.
Steve Price - Former head coach at St George-Illawarra.
Tim Sheens - Former head coach at multiple clubs. Only coach on this list to win a premiership.
1st. Anthony Griffin - On account of him having experience in a professional club and a rapport with players that could lead to him being a useful bargaining chip. His teams seem to never lack resolve despite results not always going their way, which is what ours exactly does lack.
2nd. Kevin Walters - A representative half (was probably the best player in this list of coaches) is a good person to have coaching our boom halves. Has served under arguably the two best coaches in the NRL (Bellamy and Bennett).
3rd. Brian Smith - A very good boardroom politician, could mean he’d be able to navigate the volatility in the club similarly to the way Sheens did. Is a thorough authoritarian and has a penchant for making tough decisions. Generally leaves clubs in way better shape than when he came in despite never achieving the glory of a premiership.
Would HATE to see Matt Parish or either of our current assistants. The rest would be underwhelming but not infuriating.
