Graham Murray has coached his last game at the Cowboys after ending speculation and resigning on Monday.

North Queensland fans are said to be grateful that management did not have to sack the club’s most successful coach.

Murray has told a Sydney newspaper that he will not coach again after 2008.
North Queensland lost their fourth straight game on Saturday night against Manly and sit in 15th place on the NRL ladder, marking a sad ending to the tenure of a coach who broke the Cowboys finals drought in 2004.
Murray was told before the 2008 season kicked-off that this would be his last season in charge. He’ll be replaced by former assistant coach Neil Henry.

“I won’t be coaching after this year,” Murray told the Daily Telegraph.
“I have had a real good innings – 16 years of coaching in first grade. It has been a wonderful and enjoyable journey.”

The former Parramatta halfback has a lot of credits on his coaching CV. He took Illawarra to their first finals appearance, won a Challenge Cup with Leeds Rhinos and took the roosters to a grand final in 2000 before doing the same with the Cowboys in 05.

Assistant coach Ian Millward in Murray's absence will takeover as caretaker coach of the Cowboys for the remainder of the season before he departs for Canberra in 2009 where he will assist David Furner. - Read More, Here
