Corey Neilson back as coach

Perhaps one of the worst kept secrets has been revealed as Corey Neilson has been confirmed as Panthers head coach for next season [Panthers Official Website News Link]

Interestingly, the news release doesn’t say if he will be back as a player as well as coach. If he is I would like to see him swallow his pride and recruit an experienced bench coach. Surely two seasons in the role has shown him that he can’t do it all by himself?

With the rumours that Bruce Richardson is to leave the club to take up a head coaches role, recruiting will be a part of Neilson’s summer, hopefully he’ll keep the Brits, the core and ship out the comfy ones!

Personally, I’m happy that he has returned for the continuity, however the team will have to perform more consistently if the fan base is to be kept happy and Neilson’s tenure as coach is to continue.

    when he has the job guaranteed if we finish no lower than third, it is a shoe in my old grannie could have coached us to third especially with the demise of the steelers in the season!

    For me it has to be the league or nothing as far as Corey’s future here is concerned, no more midweek and sunday team lack luster performances tolerated!

    got to be better for Rick than being stuck next to Simms every week for Sky!
