Maguire is the second NRL manager to part ways with his club on Tuesday, after Nathan Brown was sacked by the Warriors hours earlier.

The Tigers board conducted a mid-season review last week where it was decided Maguire should not continue in the role.

He trained on Tuesday morning but is expected to inform his players of his departure on Tuesday afternoon.

After 13 rounds, the Tigers sit 13th in the NRL standings with three wins to their name.

Maguire took over from Ivan Cleary four years ago, but the team has fallen behind every season since.

The Tigers haven’t made the finals since 2011.

Maguire is the third coach to lose his job this season. Trent Barrett left his role with the Bulldogs last month.
