"Steps down," "agrees to part ways," "considers other employment opportunities." Basically, he was punted. I'm not sure why. His record  is OK:

2018: Series won 2-1

2019: Series won 2-1

2020: Series lost 2-1

2021: Series won 2-1

2022: Series lost 2-1

2023: Series lost 2-1

Total: 18 games - nine wins, nine losses

Three series wins 

 

Nobody could have delivered 6 straight NSW series wins. When I look at the 2 losses this year, I would probably have picked the same teams. I've never been a coach but I don't think someone like Payne Haas or Junior Paulo needs a coach to explain their roles to them. Nathan Cleary doesn't need some rocket scientist to explain how footy works.

I don't know who the obvious candidate is.

Yes, just two days after applying for his position to be extended. It will all come out in the wash.

On 50%, Fittler's done better than I expected, to be fair.
