Richard Agar says he is not thinking about becoming Leeds Rhinos coach in the long-term, but felt it was his duty to step in for now. Agar has been part of the Rhinos coaching set up since April following the departure of James Lowes, but now finds himself in overall charge following the sacking of Dave Furner.
Agar says he had no hesitation to step in on an interim basis but is just focusing on doing a good job and not thinking about taking the job on a more permanent basis. “As probably the most experienced coach left at the club, I feel it’s my duty to step into the role and try to stabilise things during what is a difficult period,” he said.
“I’ve just got to concentrate on this week. Long-term future and plans simply haven’t been discussed. “I just want to do a really good job for however long it takes for Kevin and (chief executive) Gary (Hetherington) to work out what’s next. Whatever role they see for me going forward, I do want to be a part of that.
“The club is going through a bit of a rebuilding phase, but I do think, with the quality of the talent of the juniors on the books, the club can very much become one of the dominant forces in the game.”
