WELLINGTON - Matthew Elliott has resigned as Warriors coach.

Assistant coach Andrew McFadden has been appointed acting head coach to the end of the 2014 NRL season.

In a short statement, the club said Elliott offered his resignation following their 37-6 loss to Cronulla in Sydney on Sunday.

It was their third loss, continuing a modest start to the campaign which hasn't matched pre-season expectations.

Media speculation had mounted that the club had initiated the move to part ways with Elliott.

However, Warriors chairman Bill Wavish says Elliott made the decision.

"I have learned a lot from Matt and am saddened that he has made this decision," Wavish said.

Chief executive Wayne Scurrah said promoting McFadden, made sense.

"Andrew is widely recognised as a leader of the next generation of coaches in the NRL competition."
