Gold Coast Titans coach John Cartwright has reportedly stepped down from the NRL club.

The club is expected to make the announcement at a press conference at 4pm.

The club’s inaugural coach’s eighth year with the Titans brought another disappointing season.

The side faces missing the finals for the fourth straight year after slumping to 13th with eight wins from 19 games.

Cartwright’s assistant Neil Henry has been linked with the caretaker coach position and co-owner Michael Searle has reportedly resigned from the board.

Cartwright had two years to run on his five-year contact.

His position was brought into question last month when the club began an internal review.

The Titans last made the finals in 2010, when they went within one game of the grand final.

Cartwright had a distinguished 184-game playing career with Penrith, representing NSW and Australia.

Post-retirement, he served as an assistant coach at the Panthers and Sydney Roosters before joining the Titans in 2007.
