Seems plausible to me that he knows he wont be chasing another extension. Its common knowledge that Rutten has senior coaching aspirations. If, as you say, Woosh wants to keep coaching beyond 2020 as a senior coach then you're right, he probably would've walked and applied for another vacancy, especially freo. That to me says he's happy to finish with us after 2020, because there has been no talk from him or the club about an extension beyond that. Coaches dont have to be sacked to move on.I highly doubt there’s a succession plan in place.
People forget the reason for a succession plan... somebody is leaving!
Do we have any indication whatsoever that Worsfold is leaving after 2020 of his own accord? That he thinks his time is up and doesn’t want to coach any more?
I don’t think so.
What, so you go to one of the most senior people in the club and say “your time is up, we’re bringing this bloke through to replace you, so you’ll mentor him then you’re gone...”
I don’t think he’d agree to that. If that were the case I reckon he’d have walked and been chasing one of the vacant jobs this year. I mean if he’s gone in 12 months anyway.
