Adrian Lam says he will only start to think about his long-term future as Wigan head coach after the Easter period.
The former Papua New Guinea captain and coach is currently the favourite with Betfred to keep the job for 2020 following Shaun Edwards’ decision to pull out of returning to rugby league.
Lam was appointed as interim coach for the 2019 season and was due to return to Australia in October but he admitted that he could be open to staying on as Warriors boss.
On his future, Lam said: “Obviously events have happened this week that everybody knows about, up until this point I’ve not really thought about it.
“It’s not really the week to focus on it too much and it’s something I’ll consider in the next week.
“I was always going home in October – that was the plan from the start and still is at this point in time.
“It wasn’t in my thinking but things change. Like I said, as the week unfolds, I’ll think about it next week.
“We’ve got a massive weekend now with Friday and doubling up on Monday, and my priority now is making sure we get that right.”
