The South Sydney Rabbitohs have offered supercoach Wayne Bennett a consultancy and ambassador role to remain at the Bunnies for 2022 and beyond.
The position would allow Bennett to return to Brisbane to live for family reasons but mean the seven-time premiership-winner remains heavily involved with South Sydney.
Despite moves being afoot for a possible return to the Broncos in a coaching director capacity, the Bunnies intend to roll out the red carpet to try and ensure Bennett retains a role at the Rabbitohs for as long as the supercoach sees fit.
The Bunnies want Bennett to mentor players, coaches, officials and staff and maintain a major presence inside the club’s inner sanctum and dressing rooms.
The Bunnies still firmly believe Bennett, 71, will remain at Redfern as the club’s head coach next season.
South Sydney have assembled one of the NRL’s best coaching teams with Bennett surrounded by quality assistants in Sam Burgess, Ben Hornby, John Sutton and head-coach-in-waiting Jason Demetriou.
