FORMER Maroons halfback Paul Green has expressed his interest in the Cowboys post after the club on Monday formally parted ways with Neil Henry.

As revealed by News Limited on Monday, North Queensland are seeking a new coach after the besieged Henry was informed by chairman Laurence Lancini he is not required for next year.

Henry informed Cowboys staff of the decision Monday. He will see out the season, with the Cowboys needing to win all six games to make the finals - starting with this Saturday night's home clash against ladder leaders South Sydney.

With the Cowboys position now officially vacant, a number of frontline contenders have emerged, led by Broncos great Kevin Walters, NSW Origin assistant Trent Barrett and former Eels caretaker Brad Arthur.

Green is another firmly in the mix. Currently the Roosters' under-20s mentor, Green is contracted at Bondi until the end of next year, but the club is unlikely to stand in his way if the Cowboys look to launch his career as an NRL head coach.

"I'm not sure on the process, but I'm certainly interested," Green said.

"I've had no formal discussions with the Cowboys, but ... I'm interested in being a head coach in the NRL.

"My wife is from up there, so it would be a good fit. The Cowboys have a good roster. Now the club has made a decision I will see what the next step is."

Green has ties to North Queensland, playing 35 NRL games in 1999-2000 before his shift to the Sydney Roosters.

Cowboys boss Peter Jourdain issued a statement Monday confirming Henry's termination, with the quest for his replacement to begin immediately.

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

"Despite media speculation to the contrary, out of respect for Neil we have not sought out anyone to be his replacement beyond this season.

"To be fair to both Neil and the club, we have decided to make this decision now to allow both of us to explore our options for next year.

"The search for a new head coach will begin this week.

"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.''
