    Former Cronulla Sharks coach Shane Flanagan will be eligible for registration as an assistant coach at any NRL club for the 2020 and 2021 seasons after meeting with NRL CEO Todd Greenberg on Friday.

    Flanagan's registration comes with strict contingencies and a range of conditions made by the NRL and does not include a guarantee or return date for a head coaching role in the future.

    Flanagan was de-registered by the NRL in 2018 after being found to have been dealing with his former club in a coaching capacity while suspended in 2014.

    Today I met with the NRL and I both respect and accept the course of action they have taken," Flanagan said in a statement.

    "I look forward to returning to the coaching ranks, firstly as an assistant coach and hopefully one day a head coach again."

    You wouldn’t really feel comfortable being a head coach when your club hires Flanagan as a assistant....

    Only issue I see is he can't be a full time coach until 2022.

    If Pay had a good year next year, with Flanagan as assistant, would he take on just a one year contract? If he had a shit year, who's gonna take a one year gig until Flano is available...

    Define "Assistant" ...

    Heck clubs would pay him the assistant coach salary to comply but would make him work like a head coach.

    I think anyone could assemble a very good team if you ignore the Salary cap. Not a fan of him and not a fan of the NRL as usual being soft. This sport will die under this current leadership, it's already on life support IMO.

    Flanno strikes me as the ultimate my way or the highway type of person I’m not sure how he would go being a assistant again.

    Dunno about Dragons. Mary looks like hes getting the sack within the first 5 rounds next year. No point having Flanno there if he cant take his gig until 2022.

    I reckon he will end up at Warriors

    We dont need him tbh.

    He does not want to leave Sydney... he’s made that clear, otherwise he would’ve taken the super league gig...

    Can he go be an assistant at the Sharks or is everything to do with the Sharks off limits for Flanagan?
