Be before then imo as it’ll help with recruitment and retention if the coach is known.
potential incoming players will be told but reckon we hold an announcement on Fitz. Don’t know why. Also don’t think CC survives 5 years with GG but who knows.

A 20 year deal sounds ridiculous, but I’m that sold on him that I wouldn’t be worried if they did. I think a 5 year extension being signed sometime next year would be a wise move
Doing a bit of Projection here . I would not be signing ANYONE up to any 20 yr deals ( unless initials are JC and theres a shining halo over their head ) Just going by my own mental ,physical, and psychological deterioration over last 20 yrs ! LOL!.

Keep every contract at 3 years with a 1 year option. That’s option only.
Keep pushing through juniors.
Dont pay overs when it’s not working .

If Gould wasn't there I'd disagree but he seems to hire and fire coaches like its out of fashion. I question how much control CC will get.

I still dont see a better model for a rookie coach than the Fitz model

- long tenure as an AC with a strong club and excellent HC
- waiting for the right opportunity, not the first opportunity
- Went to a club where he can be his own man, and not be under the thumb of a Gould etc.

Makes me think of when Ricky Stuart made three grand finals in a row coaching the Roosters and got lifetime supercoach status

Also a club where there has been reasonable stability in the assistant ranks and lower grades.

Price was with us in our premiership year and Hannay has been with us for what, 4 or 5 years?

Gotta be helpful to surround yourself with talented assistants.

This is Hannah’s second year with us.
He was caretaker coach at the Cows in 2020 before coming to us.

I hear you, though. It feels like way longer than that.

Ciraldo saw Gould at work in Penrith so he must know what he's in for.

Damn autocorrect.
I should know better than to post from my phone, sans reading glasses. He writes from his phone, sans reading glasses.

Auto correct huh? Hannay to Hannah.

You in contact with Hannah a lot?

HAHAHAHA
