It’s not a contract as such, he is an employee of the club.. like normal employment.
We could boot him tomorrow and he won’t be getting a big payout..

Basically he and the club have faith in his abilities.

I'm on the fence as far as his coaching goes, but I could see the club keeping him on if someone else was appointed.

For all we know there is an "interim" aspect that's agreed by all parties.

Yep, I also wouldn’t be surprised if he ended up in a head of coaching role or similar after his stint.

Seems like a very smart operator/football person. Someone to bring across to the club at any cost.

Noble is a piece of a puzzle bought in by a club that was in disarray and in need of senior calming voices to repair the issues seeded in the unceremonious departures in 2016, exacerbated by hubris in 2019, exploded by the hub in 2020.

IMO here are 2 best case scenarios here.

1) Noble isn't in his final form yet and what he is building he has the absolute desire to push for a flag.
2) Noble has only moderate desire to be the guy in the first point but he is committed to seeing the club right itself and create a list and situation primed for success.

1) Fagan/Lions Model
2) Roos/Melbourne Model

Might be best case, but Noble was integral in the Lions model & has Roos to leverage the Melbourne model.

Difficult to not have confidence when reflecting on that IMO.

No it's not.

We went out and got people who had played a specific role in turning clubs that were messes around onboard.

It's going to take time.

I'm going to toot my own horn here. We're holding a more forward loaded press and look absolutely sublime. Even the commentators have picked up on the structural difference. Impressive adaptation from Noble to turn this around in a couple of weeks. Let's see how the Giants adjust now and if we change it up again.
