Despite saying previously that he did not want to be a full time head coach, Paul McGregor has expressed his desire to stay on as the coach of the St George/Illawarra Dragons.
McGregor made his feelings known after the Dragons 21-12 loss to the Manly Sea Eagles on Monday night.
McGregor took over the Dragons head coaching job after the club made the decision to fire Steve Price. At the time McGregor let everyone know he was not happy with the decision and took over the role reluctantly.
Since taking over McGregor has done a pretty good job with a team that is still trying to rebuild it’s playing roster. At times the Dragons look pretty good, while at other times they look like they have a long way to go before they are any credible premiership threat.
With Wayne Bennett now off the market the Dragons could do a lot worse than sticking with McGregor and trying to bring some sort of stability to the club.
Price never felt like he was a long term solution at the Dragons, but with McGregor a long term member of the club, first as a player and then as an assistant coach, he may be the man to help turn the club around.
