    Whilst the inner turmoil at Manly continues to unravel at the seams, a number of long standing coaching and development staff at Belmore have found themselves, and their roles redundant in their current capacities just prior to Christmas, with a number of announcements set in the near future.

    "At the moment, it's up for debate. Des has made it clear he'll be at Manly in 2012.

    "But if that changes, we'll deal with it on an as-need-be basis. For now, Jim Dymock has a fantastic opportunity to show what he's capable of doing as a head coach before the long-term succession plan affords him more time to develop under Des."

    Unfortunately, for Jim Dymock and associated staff, Greenberg was continuing with behind the scenes negotiations, fully aware that succession meant and spelled the end for many current Bulldogs staff.

    Said Egan, "I have really enjoyed my four years at Manly, working with the playing group". "I am good mates with (2013 coach) Geoff Toovey and it was a really tough decision. It took me a week to make but, from a professional development point of view, I thought the move was best for me."

    After sacking Kevin Moore in July, Des Hasler was Greenberg's first significant challenge since the departure of Sonny Bill Williams in August 2008.

    For the sake of the Bulldogs current football club board, he had to deliver.

    Privately the club drew up a hit-list which included Hasler and Storm's Craig Bellamy.

    Greenberg even checked to make sure Wayne Bennett had definitely signed at Newcastle.

    As time went on, it became obvious the best play was to land Hasler. On the 8th of October, the Bulldogs showed why they are still one of the best-run clubs. In unveiling a long-term succession plan for the next five years, they demonstrated a lateral thought-process guaranteed to be the envy of every other NRL outfit, but this costs jobs, and it is rumored,
    that the following coaching and administration staff may be looking for work in the coming months;

    + Jim Dymock – Interim Head Coach;
    + Andy Patmore – NYC Coach & Manager Coaching and Development;
    + Harry Harris – High Performance Coach;
    + Brett Kimmorley - Specialist Coach.

    It is also widely suggested that a number of recruitment staff may be on the block going forward.

    If Greenberg gets his way, there will also be a shortlist of players without a club, in the very close future, with Parramatta recruit, Kris Keating the fist to feel Greenberg's axe.

    There will be a number of unhappy families west of the bridge this Christmas, all of whom will be waiting the dreaded phone call no-one wants to hear. The Bulldogs have decided on a direction of excellence, and it won't matter to them which innocent bystander ends on the scrap-heap going forward.

      I don't know, I think Des isn't only hurting us right now....there are others he is affecting as well.

      Would we have a role for Brett Kimmorley? He's been one of our own once and the guy obviously has passion for the game.

        Nah, let him play 4th fiddle after Des, Crusher, Egan and co....at least he'll be able to be more in the media when Greenberg dumps him.

        Blake, you aren't serious are you?
        Let's hope that Des and greenturd have a massive clash and it all turns to crap for both of them.

          I'd like to nominate this for worst suggestion ever. I don't think an explanation of why should be needed.

          Don't know the source but it's wrong.

          Kimmorley has been working for Fox Sports and had largely nothing to do with the club.

          Patmore is still looking at options and may well still be NYC coach.

          Unsure about the others.

          Dymock has always made clear he's happy to be assistant coach under Hasler.

          If I were at The Bulldogs, I'd be marching into into Greenbers office, and asking about my job. The only issue I see with that, is that you can see how honest the bloke is. One minute tells Dymock he's in charge for now, then will be assistance coach, then behind his back dealing with Egan...LoL.

          Poor old Dymock.

          Imagine all the players feeling the pressure as well. Poor old Keating getting the boot. It goes on.

          [hr]
          Your a Dogs fan, right? This is from your own website:
          Jim Dymock – Interim Head Coach
          Harry Harris – High Performance Coach
          Tony Grimaldi – Head Conditioner
          Tony Ayoub – Physiotherapist
          Dr Joe Lombardo – Club Doctor
          Brett Kimmorley - Specialist Coach
          Fred Ciraldo – Team Manager
          Garry Carden – Assistant Strength & Conditioning Coach
          Steve McCullagh – Assistant Physiotherapist
          Larry Britton – Head Trainer
          Dr Hugh Hazzard – Medical Consultant
          Andy Patmore – NYC Coach & Manager Coaching and Development
          Justin Holbrook – NSW Cup Coach

          So you know, Dymock won't be assistant coach....he'll be assistant, assistant, assistant coach...in that order.

          I'm surprised there is not MORE being written about this. Would be a real off season winner for The Daily Telegraph.

          Very turbulent times ahead for the young families of those who have been displaced at Christmas....

          Meh, it's The Dogs.

          I wish the board would stand down Phil Hughes - another failure in South Africa.

          Ryan that information is incorrect.

          Justin Holbrook is with the Dragons as their NYC coach from 2012.
          Barry Ward is taking over as NSW Cup coach.
          Kimmorley is taking a greater role with TV commentary (I heard a whisper he might be commentating for Ch9 next year).

          he said it was straight from the website.

          he didnt ring them up and ask.

          give him a bit of credit.

          Aaaah...so the jobs are ALREADY being moved. Where's the NSW Cup coach (existing) going? Disn;t that team make the GF, and win it?

          He'd be a pretty good back-up for Tooves if Ward is taking his job. On the phone to his manager Tooves !! Snatch him up....I sure as heck know he aint goin to be assistant coach in 1st grade at The Dogs ! LoL.
