Hull FC’s Next Head Coach: Latest Rumors and Candidates Revealed

Rugby League News: Hull FC’s Hunt for a New Head Coach Heats Up

As the rugby league world eagerly anticipates the announcement of Hull FC’s next head coach, the rumour mill continues to churn. Earlier this week, it seemed Paul Rowley was set to take the job, but he ultimately chose to stay at Salford Red Devils. Now, Sky Sports pundit Jenna Brooks has provided a major update on the club’s search.

According to Brooks, two current NRL assistant coaches with strong ties to Super League are the leading candidates for the role. The first name mentioned is Brian McDermott, the former Leeds Rhinos head coach. The other potential suitor is Lee Briers, who previously played for Warrington and St Helens.

“While Briers has openly expressed his desire to take charge of a Super League side, former Wolfpack player Jon Wilkin believes it may be too early in his coaching career to take on the pressure of the Hull FC job. Wilkin also suggested that McDermott is unlikely to leave his current role with the Newcastle Knights, where he is reportedly in line for the top job.”

With Richard Myler’s limited experience as the club’s football director, the pressure is on him to make the right choice. Wilkin emphasized the importance of Myler taking his time to ensure the appointed head coach can lead Hull FC not just for the upcoming season, but for the next several years.

As the search for a new head coach intensifies, Hull FC fans will be eagerly awaiting the announcement of the man tasked with leading the club back to success.
