‘Grateful’ JT says he’s confident Paul Green will land a new gig
Johnathan Thurston has ruled out any ambition of the top coaching job at Queensland Maroons, after Paul Green stepped down as head coach of the State of Origin side.
JT said was in disbelief with how it unfolded and said Green is a “great coach, a premiership winning coach” and he had no doubt he wasn’t done yet.
“I am sure he will pick up a job somewhere.”
He worked as an assistant to Green during the series and said he was grateful for the opportunity Greeny gave him.
“I enjoyed helping out, depending on whoever the QRL go with, they might want to bring in their own staff, but yeah it’s just a waiting game to see who they choose now,” he told Peter Psaltis on Wide World of Sports.
Asked about going for a head coaching job in a club role or with the Origin side, he said he had no ambitions of being a head coach or an assistant coach for a club at this stage of his life.
