Rugby Union: MAC NOT THE MAN FOR HULL; THIS WAY FOR YOUR GRAND NATIONAL PULL-OUT .. THIS WAY FOR 21-PAGE MIRROR SPORT.

HULL hope to have a new head coach in place by Monday after front-runner Steve McNamara pledged his future to Super League rivals Bradford.

McNamara (above) had been hot favourite to replace the departed John Kear and it was expected he would decide after the Bulls' home game against Warrington tomorrow.

But Hull chairwoman Kath Hetherington revealed the club had decided to look elsewhere, just as McNamara pledged his future to the Bulls.

"I rang Steve to tell him that we would be looking elsewhere," said Hetherington. "He said he had decided to stay with Bradford anyway, but I'm not going to split hairs.

"We decided we needed someone with a bit more experience. It's a big job for your first job."

Salford head coach and former Hull player Karl Harrison and Australian veteran John Lang have both been linked with the job but are under contract until the end of the season.

Harrison has been offered three more years at Salford, while Lang is leaving Penrith.

Hull's short-list includes ex-Manly boss Peter Sharp, former Kangaroo coach Chris Anderson, and Hull old boys Craig Wilson and Neil Henry.
