Hetherington in no rush
Leeds Rhinos chief Gary Hetherington has refused to confirm who will lead the team during the 2020 Super League season.
Former Hull FC boss Richard Agar is currently at the helm on an interim basis after Dave Furner lost his job in May.
Leeds have endured another frustrating campaign in the top flight, and they are still involved in a relegation battle despite an upturn in results.
The Rhinos will meet London Broncos this weekend in a relegation four-pointer, but Hetherington claims the board have yet to make their final decision for next season.
He told the Yorkshire Evening Post: "That always has been and will continue to be a decision and an announcement for the end of the season.
"It is no different to what we said three or four months ago; the focus and the object was to create stability and improve performances if possible.
"At the time I think we were bottom of the table so we had a real challenge for this season and that is where all the focus has been.
"Clearly there has been quite a bit of work behind the scenes, there has been a lot of interest shown in the job from different candidates and all that has been handled by Kevin [Sinfield, Rhinos' director of rugby] and will continue to be.
"The end of the season will be the time to outline exactly what the arrangements are going to be and what the timescale and process will be as well."
