The story we all knew has been confirmed...
SOUTH Sydney have announced that the future of the club will be in the hands of rookie coach Michael Maguire for the next four years.
The Rabbitohs confirmed the worse-kept secret in rugby league with a press statement this morning.
Maguire, currently coaching in the UK Super League with Wigan, said he was prepared for the greatest challenge of his career.
"My wife Joelle and I are from large families and a big draw card of my decision was to have them within easy reach of our young kids, especially our eldest who starts school next year.," Maguire said.
"In football terms the NRL coaching window opened briefly and I took the decision to grab hold of a big club with big expectations, a high calibre board and management, and world class training facilities. Not unlike my first attraction to Wigan and Ian," http://www.heraldsun.com.au/sport/nrl/souths-sydney-rabbitohs-get-new-coach-michael-maguire-from-wigan-warriors/story-e6frfgbo-1226040060814
