Peter Sharp has quit as interim Cronulla Sharks coach.

Sharp informed players and staff of his decision today.

It has capped a turbulent time for Cronulla – and Sharp – who was reluctantly thrusted into the position as head coach following the suspension of coach Shane Flanagan.

Sharp was absent from the team’s crisis meeting following the sacking of Todd Carney on Monday with a pre-booked medical appointment.
