Kearney has just stood down as assistant at Storm.
We be good pick up for us as an assistant, and if KW fails again, then he could take over.

wow! This is very interesting. Kearney would be a great pickup considering areas we need improvement in.I wonder if Dave donaghy had any influence?

Other way around buddy. Unless you consider 2015 a bust.
Ahh yes.......

It appears as though I'd successfully blocked that year out of my memory.

Thanks

Some more Seibold bashing. I'm posting it in this coach thread because voices in my head told me to. Take it up with them if you don't like it.

Souths' Blake Solly:

“Anthony won the Dally M coach of the year when he was with us so clearly he is a talented coach who can get a team to achieve. He is a very good coach. The other side of that for us was that we were very disappointed with the way in which his move to Brisbane went down. It left a taste in our mouth. His pursuit of the Broncos job was probably less than transparent."​
“Our disappointment was, in giving Anthony his opportunity to be a head coach, and the success he had in the 2018 season, we would have loved at the time for him to stay long-term. As it was, Anthony made a decision that he wanted to move to Brisbane and we were disappointed he did that.”​
“Forgiven but not forgotten. That might be an accurate description. I have seen comments from Anthony saying that he wished he never left Souths and that he learnt a lot from that experience. And, if he has, I’m sure he will have some success at Manly. I think we have all recognised that and, to Anthony’s credit, he realises he has made a mistake."​
“In the end, we all move forward. Wayne Bennett was a wonderful coach here for three years and Jason Demetriou has shown what he is capable of this season. We haven’t really looked back but, at the same time, it was a difficult period for the club.”​

John Cartwright:

“He was very knowledgeable, articulate, well-educated and presents very well. His presentation to the group back then, and imparting that knowledge, was very good. His job at Manly back then was defensive coach and he was very professional and worked very hard.”​
“I think he implemented a lot of different ideas and training methods when he coached at Brisbane to what the players were previously used to.​

Storm general manager of football Frank Ponissi:

“Anthony spent three years down here,” Storm general manager of football Frank Ponissi said.​
“One year as our under 20s coach and then two years as our development, transitional coach. He impressed everyone in those three years, the way he fitted in and connected with the players.”​

This one source "close to the Broncos:"

“The Broncos players generally felt him to be very rigid and set in his ways. He had meetings organised all the time. I think the playmakers felt confused over his systems. One player told me directly that ‘Seibs’ said his door was always open but it didn’t feel open. They struggled to connect with him as a bloke. It was information overload for some players."​
“But conversely, he was very organised and tactically, he was very smart. He has a very good football brain. ‘Seibs’ certainly knows the game and understands it.”​

This one player agent:

“Seibs is very switched on – he’s intelligent – but he can over complicate things and make it hard on players. A lot of players these days don’t need to be overeducated on footy.”​

Corey Parker:

“Make no mistake, Anthony Seibold is one of the smartest minds I have come across in rugby league, so it is just how that message gets delivered and how it is picked up from the playing group."​

Seibold:

“You can have great life experiences in rugby league so when people say rugby league is just a local game, it really shits me. I hate it when people say rugby league is just two states and the north of England.”​

Reading between the lines, it sounds like the players needed caveman drawings.

Imagine going from Mr Simple Bennett to this guy...

The happy balance is in the middle. If Seibold can recognise and adjust that who knows what could happen

We seem to have quite a few dumb players so it doesn't surprise me they were confused and the ones that weren't were the ones that come across as intelligent.

Anyone have access to this ??
- will it be Kearney ?
Yes.
"The Broncos have given high-level backing for coach Kevin Walters to target former Brisbane assistant Steve Kearney in the wake of his decision to quit the Melbourne Storm. News Corp can reveal Brisbane officialdom are keen for Kearney to return to Red Hill to support Walters"

Corey Parker:
“It’s a no-brainer for the Broncos to get Steve Kearney back. Steve was at the Broncos at the back end of my career and he is a super individual. I can‘t speak highly enough of Steve. One of the best qualities about Steve is that he cares about players, he has great principles and it’s no surprise Craig Bellamy valued him so highly at the Storm. I don‘t know if he wants to continue to coach, but he would be a great asset for the Broncos.”​
“First and foremost, Steve is a really good human being. Secondly, he is a very good coach with a great temperament. I only had him as an assistant at the Broncos and he was terrific in that role. He has a good temperament in regards to upholding standards and values, but also instilling those values with a loving smile about him."​
“For whatever reason, it didn’t work when he was head coach at Parramatta, but he won a World Cup with New Zealand, he took the Warriors to the finals and he is a terrific person for any organisation. He has just about done it all in coaching. If Steve Kearney is available, I’d be jumping all over him if I was at the Broncos.”​
