ST GEORGE Illawarra Dragons have sacked under siege coach Steve Price.


NSW assistant coach Paul McGregor is set to be appointed immediately as the new St George Illawarra Dragons head coach.


Price’s sudden departure comes after the famous club has suffered six losses from their past seven matches.


Price is the first coach since David Waite in 2000 at the merged venture club to be shown the door midseason.


The Dragons were one of the form teams of the competition early in 2014 winning their first three games straight.


The wheels fell off however, and Price’s tenure came into question.


Price’s record has been poor since taking the reins from Wayne Bennett after the 2011 season.


Bennett left having guided the Dragons to the premiership in 2010.


Price has been in charge of the Dragons for a total of 58 games over the past two-and-a-half seasons for 22 wins and 36 losses for win ration of just 37.9 per cent.
