We’re not going to lie; this doesn’t sound like good news for Des Hasler.
According to 7Sport, the Bulldogs have commenced talks with Raiders assistant coach Dean Pay, presumably with the intention of bringing him in to replace Hasler.
Despite being re-signed for two more years earlier this year, speculation is mounting that Hasler will be moved on, and it appears that Pay is in the box seat to take over.
Given the punishingly boring attacking style that the Bulldogs are currently known for, familiarity with the exciting Raiders offense would no doubt be a major selling point for Pay.
Pay played 108 first grade matches for the Bulldogs from 1989-95.
