FIRST-TEAM coach Paul Broadbent is considering his future at Wakefield Trinity Wildcats having been offered an assistant coaching role at the club.

After the departure of John Kear and the appointment of new head coach Richard Agar, the coaching team at Wakefield is still taking shape but Broadbent is unsure if he will be a part of the new set-up at the start of next season.

Broadbent said: “Richard Agar will be bringing staff with him but I have been told that there is a role at the club for me as an assistant coach for both the reserve and first-team squads.

“I am going to take some time out and think about whether it is what I want to do.

“At the moment it feels like a backward step. I will be working most evenings and weekends and I have a family to think about so I will talk to them first.”

After five years at the club, Broadbent admitted: “I thought I may have had a chance of becoming head coach at some point but the club has made the calls and I respect the decisions.

“I will have a holiday and give it some serious thought but it’s not about me, it’s about the club. It is moving forward and everyone is striving to make the club better.”
