THE board of the North Queensland Toyota Cowboys has reached a decision on head coach Neil Henry that will see his tenure at the club conclude at the end of the 2013 NRL season.

Neil has had a long association with the Cowboys, starting off as an assistant coach in 2003 to 2006 before serving as the head coach for the past five seasons, taking North Queensland to the finals in 2011 and 2012.

"The board has decided that at this time the club needs to head in a different direction," Cowboys CEO Peter Jourdain said.

"Neil will continue as head coach for the remainder of this season as everyone in the club focuses on finishing as high as we can on the competition ladder in 2013.

"It is important to highlight that this decision has been reached on a professional and amicable basis.

"The Cowboys wish to thank Neil for all of his work and dedication as our head coach, including the huge amount of time he has dedicated to our community programs," Mr Jourdain said.
