I just read Mark Harvey has got the ass from Essendon , wouldn’t have a clue if his any good in that role , however been Premiership teammates he may be one Dimma has interest in ?
Lonergan being elevated is a very strong tip. Evidently did a stellar job with the players left in Melbourne who were not in the hubPersonally, I think we will elevate Xavier Clarke and Sam Lonergan, maybe Lonergan to VFL coach and bring in a couple of junior assistants as development coaches. Maybe they will appoint a recently retired player and someone who has been coaching outside the AFL for a couple of years.
It will be very difficult to bring in a senior assistant on good coin.
Unfortunately, the vindictive decision to include COVID fines in next year’s soft cap has cost another job.
Having said all this, Gold Coast ie the AFL sacked Dean Solomon with years left on his contract so they will have to pay him out for years. They may be keen to off-load some of that. Will they allow him to go to the Tigers? I doubt it.
Vindictive is the right word.
Good call.I’d assume next years assistants are already done, however I’d like to have got Sam Mitchell , far from a fave of mine, however imho I think he’ll make a very good coach in time
