NRL club aiming to turn around its run of outs starting at the top.
Gold Coast coach John Cartwright will be hauled in front of the Titans board this week in a bid to find a solution to turn around the side’s flagging fortunes.
Cartwright and his assistants will meet with interim CEO Darryl Kelly about how to best restucture football operations at the club from 2014 onwards.
After starting well this season the Titans have again missed out on the NRL finals after falling away badly in the past month.
Currently sitting in fourth, the Titans have lost their last four games in a row, with the closet of them being by 18 points against the Manly Sea Eagles.
Kelly said sitting in their current position was not good enough for a side with as much talent on the books as they posses.
However, the club boss ruled out sacking Cartwright as he gave his backing for him to lead the side until the end of his current deal.
“We are looking at ways to improve the performance right through the club, including the under-20s and our junior-development program,” Kelly said.
“John Cartwright has my full support. He is an integral part of our club.
“We are meeting to make some decisions about how we can structure the football department next year, and what resources we throw at it to improve the performances.
“There has been some discontent around feedback and a few players were concerned with the lack of attention their individual games were receiving this season,” a source close to the team said.
“In some cases, the players were searching for feedback outside Cartwright because they knew their form was falling away, but were unsure why.
“The players I have spoken to respect Carty, but know this team should be top-four.”
The Titans have somewhat painted themselves into a corner by signing Cartwright to such a long deal, which ends in 2016.
If the club did want to sack their coach it will cost them, with the former player earning $350,000 a season.
