RUGBY league can be a funny game sometimes, but Peter Regan is not laughing at the moment.

The incumbent Hervey Bay Seagulls coach said he might have applied for next year's coaching position had he known about it.

A decision on who will coach the Seagulls' A-grade side next year will be made next week and at the moment Regan won't be considered.

Seagulls president Terry Lynch said the club advertised the position in local media and on their website last month.

Four people, including an overseas candidate, have sent in their resumes to the Hervey Bay Seagulls and some have had interviews.

A bemused Regan said the first time he knew the club was accepting applications was when The Chronicle contacted him yesterday.

"I haven't talked to anyone about it and haven't had anyone offer it to me," he said.

"I thought the club would have told me they were accepting applications and asked if I was interested, even if there was no guarantee."

In his first year as coach, Regan led the Seagulls to back-to-back grand final appearances in the Bundaberg Rugby League competition.

Lynch said he had spoken to Regan "two or three times" since the grand final defeat and never brought up the coaching position while engaging in general conversation.

"I'm just surprised. He hadn't shown any interest in the job or spoken to me about doing the job again," he said.

Lynch said Regan was welcome to apply for the job and would be included in the selection process.

Asked if he would put his hat in the ring, Regan said: "I would need to talk to the club before I make that decision."

Strangely though, Regan said he was not dirty on the club.

"I'm not furious, I enjoyed working with the people in the club, the players and I love the club. I'm just confused," he said.
