NRL bombshell: Suspended Cronulla coach Shane Flanagan resigns
Shane Flanagan has resigned as Cronulla Sharks coach.
The 53-year-old was deregistered in December and fined $800,000 following an NRL investigation into his conduct while serving a one-year ban in 2014.
“This was obviously one of the toughest decisions of my 36-year rugby league career to resign from the head coaching role at Cronulla,” Flanagan said in a statement.
“The last month has taken an enormous mental and emotional toll on my family and myself.”
