Knights board to discuss Hagan's future November 21, 2005 - 7:39PM Newcastle coach Michael Hagan is set to discuss his future with the club over the next 48 hours with rumours linking him to Parramatta in 2007. Hagan has one year remaining on his contract at the Knights after enduring a horror 2004 season. The Knights won the wooden spoon for the first time in the club's history and he quit as coach of the Queensland State of Origin team after losing the series 2-1 to NSW. But Hagan is being hunted by Eels chief executive Denis Fitzgerald, according to the Nine Network. The Eels last week announced coach Brian Smith's services would not be required when his contract ends next year and are already looking for a replacement. Hagan has denied talking with the Eels but chairman Mike Tyler says the board will discuss the matter and resolve the situation quickly. "We don't really know what Hages thoughts are as far as his own future is concerned," Tyler told Nine. "We have not had the chance to sit down and talk about it so all will be revealed in the near future."
