Henjak tipped to be named Broncos coach

The Brisbane Broncos are tipped to announce the club's replacement coach for Wayne Bennett on Saturday morning.

Speculation is rife assistant coach Ivan Henjak will be only the second coach in the club's 21 years after Melbourne's Craig Bellamy re-signed long term with the Melbourne Storm Friday.

It's understood Henjak has been offered a two-year deal to make his head coaching debut with the six-time premiers next season.

Brisbane have called a press conference Saturday morning to make an important announcement about its future.

Bellamy had been considered the man most likely to take over from Bennett who is heading to St George Illawarra next season, ending the NRL's longest coaching stint at one club which began when the Broncos entered the premiership in 1988.

Bellamy ended months of speculation about his future Friday by agreeing to a five-year deal worth an estimated $2.5 million.

Others mentioned as Bennett's possible replacement are St Helens and former New Zealand Warriors coach Daniel Anderson and departing north Queensland coach Graham Murray.
