Wayne Bennett’s time as Brisbane coach has come to an end, with the Broncos terminating his contract a year early to pave the way for Anthony Seibold to take charge in 2019.
The Broncos confirmed the decision to sack Bennett this afternoon, only two days after the seven-time premiership coach declared he would see out the final year of his contract next season.
Bennett is set to join South Sydney a year earlier than expected as part of a coach swap that will see Seibold move to the Broncos.
The Broncos’ decision follows Seibold’s outburst about having a “gutful” of Bennett’s behaviour during the coaching drama, which has placed a significant emotional strain on his family.
More to come.
