Mick Potter: Open to succeeding Tim Sheens in charge of Wests Tigers
Former Bradford Bulls coach Mick Potter is open to succeeding Tim Sheens in charge of NRL club Wests Tigers.
The 2012 Super League Coach of the Year has returned to Australia following a turbulent season in which he ended up working for free after being made redundant by the club's administrator.
The ex-Catalan Dragons and St Helens boss is not putting all his eggs in one basket, however, he would be happy speaking with the club if they wanted to hold talks.
"If I am asked I would certainly go and talk to the people at Wests Tigers," he told the Sydney Morning Herald. "They play a good brand of footy and it would be a good opportunity.
"There is no point throwing your hat in the ring if you are not asked because jobs aren't like that in rugby league, I don't think. But if they wanted to talk to me I would be happy to do so."
As a player, Potter made more than 200 appearances for Canterbury, St George and Western Reds, and also played State of Origin for New South Wales.
