Manly Sea Eagles to appoint Shane Flanagan and Jim Dymock as assistants to Anthony Seibold


Manly’s new coaching panel is taking shape after the removal of Des Hasler, Shane Flanagan and Jim Dymock to be revealed as assistants to Anthony Seibold, according to Nine’s Danny Weidler.

Seibold will be offered a three-year contract as head coach, and Flanagan and Dymock will serve as sidekicks to the former Rabbitohs and Broncos mentor.

Flanagan has worked at the Dragons as an assistant and consultant since leaving the Sharks, who he coached until becoming Prime Minister in 2016.

The 56-year-old quit in early 2019 after being banned for a second time by the NRL.

Flanagan was deregistered by the NRL in December 2018 for breaching the terms of his 2014 supplements scandal ban. He was not believed to have any contact with the club during that year but it was proven he had done it several times.

If the Manly deal is confirmed, he will be the second head coach in the last decade to get a new job for 2023, with Michael Maguire announced on Tuesday as a consultant for Ricky Stuart at Canberra.

Dymock served as the Bulldogs’ interim head coach in 2011 after Kevin Moore was fired.

He was an assistant to Justin Holbrook at the Titans in his most recent role, with the former point guard being let go following a mid-season review.
