O’Neill’s resignation comes after he was this month stood down indefinitely by the club over alleged misconduct following the club’s final round loss to the Raiders.

The Wests Tigers announced his resignation on Friday afternoon.

“The Board of Wests Tigers is fully committed to ensuring the Club is an Equal Employment Opportunity employer and seeks to promote an environment that supports diversity, productivity and professionalism,” the statement said.

“All employees have the right to be treated fairly and with respect. Discrimination and harassment will not be tolerated and the Board will not excuse misconduct in any circumstances. The Club intends to make no further comment on this matter.”

O’Neill, who began his playing career for Balmain in 1994 played 102 games for the club before representing the Wests Tigers joint-venture on 121 occasions between 2000 and 2005.

The 41-year-old finished his career playing in the English Super League and worked with the NRL match review committee after hanging up the boots in 2007.

After eight years at the NRL, O’Neill took on the job as the general manager of the Tigers six months ago and had to oversee the departure of close friend Robbie Farah from the club to arch rivals South Sydney.
