Sharks coach Peter Sharp quits
Tuesday, July 01, 2014

Update: 1:53PM INTERIM Cronulla coach Peter Sharp has stood down from his role, effective immediately.

Sharp, who took over the reins at the Sharks in place of the suspended Shane Flanagan, made the decision on Monday.

It has been a horror week for the Sharks who sacked Todd Carney on Sunday following the emergence on social media of an image of the star player urinating in his mouth.

The Cronulla board will now commence an immediate search for a replacement for Sharp for the remainder of the season.

"While very sad to see him go it was fitting that Peter departs on his own terms, that being on the back of a record-breaking comeback win for the club last Friday night in Brisbane," Noyce said.

"The club certainly appreciates his efforts in what has been a very difficult season and while he may have expressed a reluctance to take on the role when first handed the reins, once appointed Peter worked exceptionally hard and always acted in the best interests of the players and the club."

In announcing his resignation, Sharp was of the belief the decision was the correct one for both himself and for the Cronulla club.

"But I think the decision Ive made to step down is in the best interests of the club and I believe for me it is in my best interests as well. I hope the players can fulfil their potential and finish the season on a positive note."
