Former South Sydney
coach Shaun McRae walked away from his position as Rabbitohs Director of
Coaching and Football Operations on Monday, bellowing a desire to coach again
while staking out further work within the media.



McRae - who coached South Sydney for two-seasons (2005-06) and aided the
perennial cellar dwellars in avoiding the wooden spoon in his first season -
was replaced by Jason Taylor at the end of 2006.



Initially accepting the position of Director of Football, McRae reneged after
admitting that "at this stage of my
career I didn’t want to pursue an administrative role."



“I’m not sure what I’m going to do at this
stage apart from seeing what is available and what my options are,”
McRae said.



For the former Hull FC and Gateshead mentor,
current coaching positions available are limited but not imposible to attain so
close to the new season.



The Pennant Hills/Cherrybrook Rugby League Club recently advertised for an
A-Grade coach in Rugby League Week while "an inner west rugby union club
is currently looking for an experienced and qualified coach for the 2007
season."



McRae has proved more then capable of excelling in game analysis, having
covered the English Super League for Sky Sports in the past and should not find
it extremely difficult in filling in any future vacancies.



Rabbitohs CEO Shane Richardson said: "Shaun's
decision is disappointing but understandable.



"He has a desire to coach and we wish
him the best in the future."
