Gold Coast chairman John Witheriff announced that the club and Coach Guy McKenna had made a mutual decision to part company. Witheriff said that while McKenna was disappointed, he put the interests of the club first.

Witheriff paid tribute to McKenna's influential role in establishing the Gold Coast Suns saying "Guy is a man with tremendous values and he will leave us knowing his legacy is our club’s promising future. He has been paramount in installing our club’s values - Bold, Fresh, Relentless, Community and Dependable. Those values are the guiding principles which our people live by every day."

He also said that McKenna's contributions had helped the club gain respect on the field. McKenna admitted that while he would have preferred to continue in his coaching role at Gold Coast, he is proud that he leaves with the club in a strong position. “It has been a privilege to have coached the Gold Coast Suns ... Although I leave with a heavy heart, I am content that I have helped develop a unique group of players. I leave with some great memories and strong friendships".
