Following the completion of a review of the 2012 season, the Board of Wests Tigers has decided to restructure the Club’s Football Operations. This restructure will include the appointment of a new NRL Coach for 2013.
Chairman David Trodden said that current Head Coach Tim Sheens has made an enormous contribution to the Club over the last ten years.
“Tim has been the most influential figure in the Club’s 13 year history,” Trodden said.
“He came to a Club that had not enjoyed success and was struggling to establish itself.”
"Tim has established professional structures and built a foundation from which there is now a genuine expectation of sustained success.
"He was the Coach of our first ever Premiership winning team and for all of those reasons he will always have a special place in the history of our Club.
“The last ten days have been particularly difficult for everyone and the one thing which has shone through has been the dignified and professional manner in which Tim has conducted himself.
“We are very keen for Tim to continue with our Club in a senior role as part of our restructure.
“We will now embark on the process of selecting the coach of the Wests Tigers NRL side in 2013.
“This is clearly a critically important task that we will manage carefully and professionally over the coming weeks.”
A sub-committee has been formed to lead this process which will commence immediately.
