The Daily Telegraph’s Phil Rothfield reports the Titans could sack Holbrook before their next match against the Broncos on July 16.

According to the report, there are clauses in Holbrook’s contract which allow the Titans to terminate him without facing a costly payout.

Holbrook would become the fourth coach sacked this season following the exits of Trent Barrett, Nathan Brown and Michael Maguire.

It is set to create a bidding frenzy with none of the Bulldogs, Warriors or Tigers to have appointed replacement coaches.

Michael Maguire has made it clear he wants another NRL job while Shane Flanagan and Paul Green are also hunting a coaching return.

Cameron Ciraldo has been courted by several sides but has baulked at making the leap from Panthers assistant to head coach.

Holbrook appeared at a loss for answers after the loss to a Knights side missing Kalyn Ponga.

“It was awful,” Holbrook said after the game.

“We didn’t know what we were doing out there (defence). We’ve got a lot to fix up.

“I am (lost for answers) tonight. In the last game we competed hard against the Sharks, then tonight we’re a million miles off. We have to look at the team and who’s running out there.

“There’s been a lot of things (go wrong). We’ve got guys in positions not doing their job well enough for the NRL.

“We’re so disappointed. We’ve got to make a few changes now and get back into it.”
