    Gold Coast Titans coach Garth Brennan sacked

    The Gold Coast Titans announce they are parting ways with coach Garth Brennan, citing the team's poor performance on field this season.


    The Gold Coast Titans have announced coach Garth Brennan has been sacked.

    The decision comes after Friday night's 24-2 loss to the Penrith Panthers, leaving the Titans at the bottom of the NRL ladder after 17 rounds.

    In a statement, Titans executive chairman Dennis Watt said "no one at this organisation, or anyone involved in rugby league, wanted Garth's time as head coach of the Titans to end this way".

    "However, the results the club has achieved on the field this season have not met expectations, and the team's performance in recent weeks has fallen to a level that is unacceptable to the board, our members, fans, sponsors and partners," he said.

    "Unfortunately, that has left the club in a situation where Garth remaining in the position of head coach has become untenable."

    Assistant coaches Craig Hodges and Luke Burt will act as interim coaches of the Titans for the rest of the 2019 season, with an official replacement to be appointed at a later date.

    Brennan is not the first head coach to lose his job at the club.

    Neil Henry was sacked in 2017 less than three years into his contract, following a reported feud with high-profile recruit Jarryd Hayne.

    More to come.
