BRADFORD Bulls are looking to appoint a new head coach after Geoff Toovey has left the club with his contract not being renewed, the favourite for the job is former Featherstone boss Jon Sharp.
On the Toovey decision, Co-owner Andrew Chalmers said: “Geoff joined us as we embarked on our journey to re-build the club. He worked tirelessly with the support of the football staff to try and overcome last season’s 12-point penalty.
“We would like to thank Geoff for stepping in at a difficult time and for the personal sacrifices he made to commit to last season, we wish him all the best in the future.”
Toovey added: “It was a tough decision not to return to the Bradford Bulls for a second year, last year was one of the most challenging years that I’ve had as a coach.
“The club and the fans made the experience one I will never forget, I’m confident the club will have an excellent season in 2018 and continue to move forward beyond the coming year.”
On moving forward to find a replacement, football manager Stuart Duffy said: “We have begun the process of recruiting a Head Coach. I stress that no one has been interviewed for the role as yet and we are looking for suitably experienced and qualified Coaches to send an expression of interest by Email to myself at the club by next Friday, 24th November.”
