Cullen goes by mutual consent


WARRINGTON Wolves have today confirmed that they have parted company with Head Coach Paul Cullen by “mutual consent.”
In a statement Wolves Chairman Lord Hoyle said:“On behalf of Warrington Wolves I wish to thank Paul for all of his services to the club. Paul is Warringtonian through and through and no one could have been more proud wearing the ‘primrose and blue’ than Paul.
“He served the club with distinction for twenty five years as a player, Assistant Coach and finally as Head Coach from August 2002. We wish Paul well for the future.”
Assistant Coach James Lowes has been appointed as acting Head Coach until a permanent successor is in place.
Cullen’s fate was sealed following a run of poor performances, just one league win in the last seven outings,
culminating in the 28-36 home defeat by basement club Castleford Tigers.
Although Cullen tendered his resignation following the game it was no secret that it was a “must win match” if he was to keep his contract.
His existing contract was due for review later this year and it is believed the club will honour it.
The club is now looking to line up a successor.
One name being linked to the club is Graham Murray, ex-Leeds, who recently resigned as Head Coach of North Queensland in Australia, although the Wolves are adament no one has been selected for the role as yet.
A source close to the club said: “I don’t think we will be short of applicants as Warrington is a big club with a bright future.”
Cullen appeared anxious before the match and realised he had little choice but to tender his resignation after watching his team of big name stars crumble to a patched up Castleford outfit who had not won away from home for two years!
