Ex-NRL players and coaching duo Shane and Ben Walker will throw their hats back into the ring to land the vacant Gold Coast job.
Overlooked by the Titans in 2017 following Neil Henry's sacking, the brothers have bided their time with Queensland Cup team Ipswich as they wait for an NRL opportunity.
With Garth Brennan sacked by the Titans on the weekend less than two years into the role, the quest is on to find his replacement.
Shane Walker says the disappointment of being beaten to the role by Brennan hadn't put him and his brother off the Titans position.
"No, not at all. It's a bit like when you ask a girl out on a date, sometimes she rejects you and then you end up marrying her," Walker told AAP.
"All I can say is we are 100 per cent keen on getting the job ... we've been involved in NRL systems since we were 14.
"We haven't had the need to take the traditional route of being an assistant to someone. It was a conscious decision to set ourselves up that way."
The pair have been in charge of Ipswich for almost a decade, leading the club to the Queensland Cup premiership in 2016.
They are among several candidates to have expressed an interest in the role, with Sydney Roosters assistant Craig Fitzgibbon also reportedly keen on the position.
Titans executive chairman Dennis Watt said the club is happy to splurge if it means they land the right candidate for the position.
"We haven't focused on that (money) too much but at the end of the day we want the best coach," Watt said.
Rugby league Immortal Mal Meninga held a clear-the-air session with the Titans players on Monday and Watt said he wasn't expecting a roster clear-out in the wake of Brennan's sacking.
"I know the players had a real honesty session with Mal Meninga about where they are," Watt said.
"They certainly don't want to stay where they are and I think you'd agree that the squad is better than where it sits on the ladder currently."
