Comets explain coach decision
AN INCIDENT allegedly involving members of the Central Comets and a decision to investigate the appointment of a new head coach were unrelated, management said yesterday.
Comets chief executive Jamie Boon said a complaint regarding the incident had been received, al- though not from Rockhampton Bas- ketball, as some media had reported.
He said that complaint would be dealt with at a Comets Code of Con- duct Adherence Committee meeting tonight.
Boon said the decision to look for a new coach at the end of the cur- rent season was a separate decision not influenced by the incident at Friday night's game between the Rockhampton Rockets and Gold Coast.
He said coach Neale Crow in- formed the board at least a month ago that he was not interested in seeking reappointment for 2006.
Meanwhile, playmaker Aoterangi Herangi is set to make a comeback from injury in this weekend's Queensland Cup clash with Ipswich. Herangi, 19, has been out of action since suffering a hand injury in a round 8 match against Souths Logan.
