The caretaker coach told media he wants the Titans head coaching role in a permanent capacity.
Gold Coast Titans caretaker Neil Henry says he would love to take on the role of head coach permanently if it was offered to him.
John Cartwright’s eight years at the helm of the Titans came to an end on Monday with a disappointing 26-18 loss to the Roosters.
It looks as though it’s only a matter of time until Henry is appointed head coach, and Henry is optimistic of attaining the role.
“I aspire to be a head coach and I’d like to stay on the coast,” Henry said.
“We’ll wait and see what the board decide.”
Henry has the backing of the outgoing Cartwright, with the departing coach endorsing his assistant to take over the role in a permanent capacity.
“He understands the landscape, he understands where the club sits, I certainly endorse him,” Cartwright said following the loss to the Roosters.
“It hasn’t shown in our results but I think to be there for 12 months is the big advantage.
“You understand where we are as a club, and what our limitations are and what you have to work within.”
