Weren't all these signings under his watch? I'm sure he was pressured into signing a few high profile players but at the end of the day he is the head coach and has to assume full responsibility for that component.
With that said, the Gold Coast are so far behind other clubs it's going to take more than a good head coach to turn the place around. They need years of success off the field to build a proper foundation and get the talent through.
The biggest cause for concern heading into the season was that Isaako and W. Smith both found themselves in crucial positions in the team. That shouldn't happen and you really ought to be bringing through better talent by now.
I get the impression Holbrook doesnt have a big say in recruitment. I think Mal decides who they chase and he has to go along with it.
