SYDNEY, March 22 AAP - Shane Flanagan is believed to have been reinstated as Cronulla coach after meeting with the board of the embattled NRL club on Friday morning.

The Sharks have called a media conference for new chairman Glenn Coleman and Flanagan at the club at 10.15am AEDT when it's expected an announcement on his return will be made.

Flanagan was stood down two weeks ago by the board while four other senior staff were sacked amid the anti-doping investigation which has plunged the club into crisis.

Flanagan has retained the full backing of the Sharks playing squad and the possibility he could be reinstated arose when Damian Irvine quit as chairman last week, with Coleman taking over.

Interim Cronulla coach Peter Sharp earlier this week admitted he had no idea if Flanagan would be reinstated, but said everyone involved with the side wanted him back.

"He's the coach of this football club and everybody in the football club wants him back, myself included," Sharp said on Monday.

"Let's hope we get some closure on that as well."
