Despite still having two years left on his contract, the Broncos made the decision to sack Henjak, with Broncos assistant coach Anthony Griffin set to be the care-taker coach for the 2011 season, sparking constant and new rumours about the Broncos coach in 2012.
It has been alleged that Henjak was given three months pay on the proviso of strict confidentiality being maintained on the issues behind his sacking.
His downfall is believed to have started when a report filled in by the players at the end of the 2010 season, had some negative and unfavourable comments about Henjak.
“It has been decided at board level that a change needed to be made in this regard and that change will be made effective immediately,” chief executive Paul White said at a packed press conference at the club’s Red Hill headquarters.
“These are tough times for all parties concerned, but I would like to express my personal thanks and that of the club to Ivan for taking on such a challenging role and for his valuable contribution to the Broncos for the past eight years.”
Henjak was unaware that he was set to face the chop, given that he spoke highly of the Broncos last trial win over the Cowboys in Alice Springs last week.
