Des Hasler has been given a stay of execution and will remain as coach of Canterbury next NRL season after fronting a Bulldogs board meeting, according to reports.

The Seven and Nine networks as well as News Corp Australia are also reporting board member and club legend Steve Mortimer has resigned after the meeting on Friday afternoon at ANZ Stadium.

Hasler, due to come off contract at the end of next season, had been under pressure to keep his job despite leading the Bulldogs to two grand finals and finishing in the top eight in each of his five years at the club.
