Canterbury Bulldogs name Dean Pay as new coach, replacing Des Hasler - ABC Online

Former Canterbury Bulldogs forward Dean Pay has been confirmed as the new coach at Belmore, replacing Des Hasler.

Hasler departed from the Bulldogs last week after they informed him they would not be renewing his contract for next year.

The club has announced Pay, an assistant coach at the Canberra Raiders — who played 108 games for the Bulldogs and was part of the team's 1995 premiership side — has been signed on a two-year contract.

In a statement, Bulldogs chairman Ray Dib said the club was "delighted" with the appointment.

"Dean is a Bulldogs man through and through and someone who totally understands the history and tradition of the club," Dib said.

Steve Mortimer backs Ray Dib at Canterbury Bulldogs elections - The Sydney Morning Herald

Steve Mortimer will lend his heavyweight support to Canterbury chairman Ray Dib at the upcoming elections after satisfying himself the Bulldogs are on track to regain the culture that made them the "family club".

The blue and whites have gone back to their roots by reappointing Mortimer to the board and installing former players Dean Pay and Andrew Farrar as coach and head of football respectively. There was a feeling that Canterbury had gone away from the values that made the club so successful in its halcyon years under patriarch Peter "Bullfrog" Moore.

Michael Lichaa to remain with Canterbury Bulldogs on two-year deal - The Sydney Morning Herald

At Canterbury's presentation night, Michael Lichaa was honoured as one of the club's departing stars. Now, just a month later, he has agreed to terms on a two-year extension at Belmore.

Lichaa was set to be squeezed out of the Bulldogs due to salary cap pressures and a style of football that didn't mesh with Des Hasler. However, the coach's sacking, coupled with the funds freed up by the departure of utility back Brad Abbey, will allow Lichaa to remain in the blue and white.

"I think I'll be staying put," Lichaa said. "I agreed [to terms] over the weekend, so I'm just waiting on the paperwork side of things. Hopefully over the next week or two it will be all done.

"It's a bit of a turnaround but stranger things have happened."

Indeed, Lichaa was called onto the stage...

Incoming Canterbury CEO Andrew Hill weighs in on Dean Pay appointment, Michael Lichaa call - NEWS.com.au

INCOMING Canterbury chief executive Andrew Hill will take a back seat in the NRL club’s administration as he completes his duties as Rugby League World Cup boss. Hill isn’t due to start with the Bulldogs until after the end of the World Cup in early December, but has played an active role in the rebuild of the club since the end of the season.

He was involved in the Bulldogs’ return to their roots in signing Dean Pay last month as a replacement for sacked coach Des Hasler, amid a number of moves at the club.

But with his tournament set to kick off when Australia host England in Melbourne next Friday, Hill has this month returned his focus back to the global game.

“The coach is in place and I’ve got a massive job to deliver the best ever Rugby League World Cup,” Hill said.

Canterbury star Josh Jackson has hailed the appointment of Dean Pay as coach, believing he will reintroduce a "successful culture" at Belmore.

Pay signed a two-year deal to take over from Des Hasler, who is taking legal action against the club after it claimed his two-year contract extension was "non-binding".
