PARRAMATTA'S search for a new coach took an eleventh hour twist on Grand Final day, with Ray Price interviewed for the position that he wants to share with fellow club great Brett Kenny.

A passionate and vocal campaigner, Price fronted a four-man delegation of the Eels board at Parramatta Leagues Club on Sunday.

The premiership-winning warhorse on Monday night said the club needed people in charge who understood Parramatta's culture.

He wants to take charge with Kenny, who coached the club's NSW Cup feeder side Wentworthville several years ago.

"We need Parramatta people to get Parramatta out of the crap," Price said.

"I sat down with the board for about 90 minutes and they agreed with everything I said.

"It took me a long time to speak to the board, but I kept ringing and ringing and ringing for the opportunity.

"I genuinely believed we had a top eight side this year - we just needed to back our players."

Despite getting the chance to put his case forward, Price is not confident he'll get the job.

Manly assistant Brad Arthur remains the raging hot favourite ahead of Tim Sheens, Steve McNamara and Jason Taylor.

The fact Sheens won't return from Australia's World Cup campaign until December damages his chances, while the current playing squad is backing Arthur - their assistant coach in 2011 and 2012 - to get the job.

The announcement will be made later this week, following a board meeting on Monday night.

"I'm probably a million to one to get the job, even though I've always put my hand up to help them make a difference," Price said.

"I wanted to help with their defence this year, but they were happy with their defence. How can that be?"
