After Nathan Brown’s decision to leave St Helens and head home to Australia for family reasons, his name is beginning to be touted around with various coaching positions in the NRL.
He was heavily linked with the Wests Tigers job, before missing out to Jason Taylor in the race to be the new boss. But, per reports in the Australian media, Brown has been approached by another NRL side – but not as head coach, as an assistant.
Geoff Toovey’s Manly Sea Eagles are believed to have approached Brown regarding a coaching role at Brookvale Oval – but it is unclear whether Brown is willing to take up a role as a No.2 just weeks after coaching St Helens to Grand Final glory in Super League.
With his stock rising considerably following that success, there’s a distinct possibility Brown may opt to wait on for a head coaching role in the NRL. But with the Daily Telegraph reporting an approach has already been made by the Sea Eagles, could Brown be tempted to jump back into an assistant coaching role?
