Rabbitohs Confirm Coaching Succession Plan

The South Sydney Rabbitohs have confirmed that current assistant coach Jason Demetriou has agreed to terms on a contract extension with the South Sydney Rabbitohs with a view to succeeding Wayne Bennett as Head Coach of the Club post the 2021 season, a plan which has been in place since Coach Bennett’s appointment at the Club.

Coach Bennett is contracted to the Rabbitohs until the end of the 2021 season with Demetriou lined up to take over the Head Coach role for the pre-season preparations leading into season 2022.

The Club will maintain its focus on the 2020 and 2021 seasons under Coach Bennett and preparing for next Saturday’s pre-season feature match, the 37th Charity Shield against the St George Illawarra Dragons at Glen Willow Stadium in Mudgee.
