Wests Tigers have announced they will not renew the contract of head coach Mick Potter for the 2015 season.
Potter’s future as coach was in major doubt amid reports he shared a poor relationship with captain Robbie Farah.
The announcement of a new club board effectively signalled the end of Potter’s time in charge of the Tigers.
“This has been a difficult decision for everyone involved but one that the club believes is in the best interests of a successful future for Wests Tigers,” Tigers CEO Grant Mayer said in a statement.
“Clearly there will be many disappointed fans as, to his credit, Mick has developed a strong following here. However, we ask that you trust that we have made this decision in the interests of a stronger, unified club, following a rigorous and fair process.
“Mick Potter had been given three opportunities over the past six weeks to address the board and present his vision and plan for Wests Tigers going forward.
“Taking this into account, the Wests Tigers board and management agree that a fresh approach is needed and the club will immediately begin a process to identify leading candidates for the role.”
The Tigers finished 13th this season, with a 10-14 record.
