Wests Tigers have announced coach Jason Taylor has been sacked, effective immediately.

The club released a statement this afternoon.

“On behalf of everyone at Wests Tigers I’d like to thank Jason for his commitment and contribution to the club during his time as head coach,” said club chair Marina Go.

“Jason has overseen significant change within the club over the past two seasons and we thank him for his efforts.

“Our position has always been to make sure that the head coach’s contract is tied to performance and that hasn’t changed.

“We are committed to building a side that will be in a position to win NRL premierships and believe that this decision is the correct one for the future of the club.

“This is a challenging time for the club and Jason and we ask that we are given time to work through this process with Jason.”

Assistant coach Andrew Webster will take over in the interim from the former St Gregory’s College Campbelltown student.
