Former NRL player and specialty coach for the Gold Coast Titans, Michael Gordon, has been charged by police in connection with a syndicate allegedly distributing illegal drugs such as MDMA and cocaine across the NSW-Queensland border.
Gordon was charged yesterday on two cases of delivery of a banned drug and two cases of possession of a banned drug in a far-reaching police stab.
Six other people were arrested and charged. All were accused of running the syndicate on the north coast of New South Wales and southeastern Queensland.
The Gold Coast Titans released a statement that Gordon has resigned from his contract until further notice.
“The Gold Coast Titans have been made aware that Michael Gordon has been charged by police,” the club said in a statement.
“Michael worked on a contract basis and offered the club specialized coaching services last season. He will not be providing any services to the club until further notice.”
“The club will not comment further as the problem now lies with the police.”
He has been given bail and is due to appear at the Tweed Heads Police Station next month.
