Hull FC Chairman Adam Pearson announced live on air that coach Lee Redford had been released by the club following their 38-4 loss to the Warrington Wolves.
The way in which Pearson announced this was quite surprising and has left Super League fans wondering who will be the next man to coach Hull FC.
The answer for me is former Gold Coast Titans coach Garth Brennan.
Yes, the man who had that club heading towards a wooden spoon (which they eventually got), before being sacked halfway through the season.
However Brennan prior to that had a decent resume, especially in the lower grades.
In 2012 he was named the Holden Cup coach of the year and was in charge of the New South Wales Under 18’s during same season
Lee Radford has been sacked live on Sky tonight.

Brennan then lead the Panthers to their first Holden Cup premiership in 2013 and was promoted to head coach of the Panthers NSW Cup side in 2014 where they would win the competition.
He would lead the Panthers to a second NSW Cup premiership and a State Championship in 2017.
The 48-year-old would then make the move to the Gold Coast Titans in 2018 winning 12 from 40 games at the club before being moved on.
Although Garth Brennan had a poor start to his first grade coaching career he will be hungry to redeem himself and rebuild his reputation amongst coaching community. At this point in time the best way of doing that would be to move to England and turn Hull FC’s season around.
