The Penrith Panthers have confirmed that Phil Gould will be leaving the club.
In a statement released this afternoon, Panthers CEO Brian Fletcher said that Gould was "adamant" that his position had "become redundant".
This morning Panthers Chairman Dave O’Neill and myself met with Phil Gould to discuss his position at the club. Phil was adamant that his position as Executive General Manager Rugby League has become redundant and his time at Panthers is at an end. While there will be opportunity for further reflection once matters are formalised, I wish to acknowledge the extraordinary impact Phil has had on this club since returning as Executive General Manager in 2011. The Panthers Board will meet tomorrow to discuss the potential terms of Gould’s departure from Panthers.
