2020 Assistant Coach Prospects: The Next Batch

Recommended Posts

I wouldn't mind noting in this thread who might make a good senior coach.

We'll need a back up option in 2020 pretty quickly, I fear.

Throw all the $$$ at Matty Scarlett. Fat chance he'd even consider leaving Geelong, but getting him would go a long way to helping us with our defensive issues.

I remember reading somewhere, pretty sure here on Demonland, that there was a bit of an admin shakeup happening on top of the football review. Seems like this is part of it.

That change certainly supports the club's goal of reviewing all aspects of the business.

These days football technology is critical.  By making this change it shows the club highly values this function.  I applaud that.  Now to find the right person to build the football analysis side of our operations.

Anyone know much about Andy Collins? Impressed by his performance today and his record looks very good also. Big raps on his ability to relate to players, build relationships and culture apparently. Might be happy where he is, but for anyone that knows more about him, would he be worth the call?

Just my weekly rant re: Assistant Coaches. And i know it will happen, I'm just even more intrigued that fact there is no talk about this at all. 2 main coaching positions still vacant, no one is talking about it, not the fans , not the media, not the club.

Oh well, maybe next week when i post on this thread we might have news.

I wouldn't mind John Barker as an assistant coach at the Demons.

How many coaching positions do we need to fill? I know we have Alan Richardson now.

But I still think it is 3 or 4?

I can tell you that a current assistant compared Goodwin to a premiership coach he’d worked under, and said he’d never experienced an environment as good as the dees, and would not want to work anywhere else. The premiership coach he’d worked with would often not even acknowledge him when passing in a tight corridor and no one else around.

I’d say there’s more good than bad (regarding Goodwin & the club) in those comments. I don’t see where treating people like [censored] leads to success.

Not following you. You say he is a Premiership coach. That is the success everyone is trying to achieve. Name the coach to add some context

Hope that all the assistant coaches are announced soon.

Especially having a kicking and/or goal kicking coach.

 

Would love to have David Neitz, David Schwarz, Jeff Farmer and Brad Green back at the club on a regular basis.

 

I know Aaron Davey was doing an AFL coaching course and was involved with our pre-season training last year up at the Sunshine Coast in Queensland.

 

As I have said many times, we need good quality football people at the club.

 

I'll probably be pretty angry if we don't recruit Mark "Choco" Williams as a development coach. He is being wasted as just a VFL coach. But I will wait and see as to who fills the vacant coaching positions first.

Happy with Alan Richardson coming to the Demons. So that's a positive step in the right direction at least.

Thanks M5. Seems utterly strange if positions are filled but have not been announced, and if that's the case and i have no reason not to believe you JM did not communicate the status of this very well in an IV last week. 

Oh well, hurry up and wait i suppose.

With Richardson as the director of coaching he may have suggested that they had too many assistants last year and has simplified the coaching roles ie Senior coach, backline, forward line, midfield, ruck and kicking coach. The director may look after both coach and player development.

How many coaches does it take to change a lightbulb??

@Mach5 has also indicated we have filled the vacant positions which I've interpreted as 3 vacancies will have 3 replacement. 

Hopefully it isn't a case of the club thinking someone is over the line and then found to not be joining us. 

What we know:  Richardson for McCartney,  the line coach (hopefully for forward ) referred to in the article for Rawlings.  That leaves the Jennings strategy role.  Hopefully, we will still replace him. 

Maybe M5 can shed light on this.

I take it that the Jennings role wont be replaced and it will be just a line coach to be added.

That would concern me.  Goodwin, Plapp and Chaplin inexperienced and we don't have a forward coach.  They didn't do well when we hit rough water.

Jennings' role was 'strategy', effectively our 'brains trust'.  He served us very well for until this year.  But so many things went wrong this year it can't be put down to his strategy work.

Goodwin needs more and better help than he had last year not less.  Extra unnecessary burden on him if Jennings is not replaced.

    BACK IN STYLE by Whispering Jack

    From the moment when the Elton John character in the movie “Rocketman” burst into its opening scene dressed as a flamboyant demon on his way to an addiction rehabilitation session, the game was on. Here was yet another film about a person gifted with a meteoric rise to stardom finding coke, booze and a hedonistic lifestyle that led directly to a destructive crash into the abyss. Ultimately, these stories end in total disaster (“A Star is Born”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Judy”) but this one resulted

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2019

    PART ONE - OVERTURE  I have a disclaimer at the outset. I’m not a fan of the races - be they horses or motors of any kind. Once the final siren sounds on the football season, I find the month or so that follows and corresponds roughly with the Spring Racing Carnival to be the most boring time of the year for sports fans. You turn on the radio and you’re confronted by the monotonous drone of a self-proclaimed racing expert or by the nasally twang of an ex-jockey banging on about the equine p

    CHANGES 2019 by The Oracle

    PART 1 - IT’S A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED THIS TIME This year’s free agency, trade and draft period will see the usual drama and upheaval as the AFL’s 18 clubs seek to better their lists in order to challenge for finals and possibly premiership honours. Long before the final siren sounded on the season just over a week ago, the maneuvering was under way with player agents and clubs discussing possible player movements and in some cases, deals had already been done.  Yesterday, the r

    HOW FAR SOUTH? by George on the Outer

    It was appropriate that Melbourne was playing its last game of season 2019 in Hobart.  After all, how much further south could the team go? And much as it has done in many of the previous 22 games, the side managed to extract a loss from a winning position by simply giving the ball back to the opposition time and time again. In fact, they gave it back to the opposition to the tune of 53 points from turnovers while, by way of contrast North Melbourne contributed  only 17 points to their oppo

    COOKED by The Oracle

    I can vividly remember when the Demons ventured onto Blundstone Arena for the first time in early 2016 only to lose to the Kangaroos by 20.11.131 to 21.10.136.    Melbourne was then a team on the up and up: young, enthusiastic and bold. It gave up a huge quarter time deficit after kicking against a strong wind but made that up by half time and fell dramatically short after an exciting high scoring affair.  The team lost no fans that day - they were willing to take the game on and attac

    HELP by KC rom Casey

    The Casey Demons finished off their home and away season against Frankston at Skybus Stadium on Sunday with a narrow, unconvincing 6-point victory that left the door slightly open for a top eight berth when the VFL finals begin in a fortnight’s time. While sunny skies prevailed over Frankston in the morning, the skies became overcast by noon and heavy waves pounded the bay nearby as the rains came in to greet the players as the game started. And conditions stayed dark and dreary for the rem

    THANKS BUT NO THANKS by George on the Outer

    Thanks, but no thanks! In a round where the club was supposed to thank their fans for the support during the year, the Melbourne Football Club chose to do otherwise with a 53 point loss to a team that sat 15th on the ladder.  Don’t give us cheap jumpers that can’t be sold in the Demon shop.  Don’t give us vouchers to shop there, give us something on the field, which is why we come to the football in the first place. It was a disgraceful performance, which started with a disgracefu

    SLEEP OUT AT THE MCG by The Oracle

    Around about 12 months ago Melbourne and Sydney fought out an epic battle between two top eight teams fighting for the best possible ladder position in the lead up to the finals. The Swans triumphed by 9 points at the MCG after the Demons came back from five goals down at three quarter time. But for its poor kicking for goal, Melbourne might well have won the game and finished in the top four. Who knows what might then have happened for the club in September? As a consequence, the person re

    Two clubs that have been hard hit by injury recently took part in a dour battle under dark clouds and, with intermittent showers falling, it wasn’t a pretty game at Victoria Park on Sunday. Despite all that, the Casey Demons added a little ray of sunshine to their day to get the job done over a "traditional" rival with a 15 point victory over Collingwood VFL that breathed life back into their season. There were a few highlights at the ground that in past days has seen many titanic batt

    THE RETRO ROUND by George on the Outer

    We have seen it all before… Yes, a wonderful idea to showcase what used to be in football.  Big crowds, umpires who knew how to apply the rules and not opinions, high marks, skilful players. But for the Melbourne supporters their retro is what it has been like for the past 10 years. Losing games, end on end, year after year.  Opportunities squandered in front of goal. VFL standard players running around at the MCG. Just more of the same, and the game against Collingwood was no ex

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    Thanks to Demonlanders for their input into this week’s preview. Ralphius Maximus is short and bittersweet: We'll crack in at the bounce to create a contest, win our share of the ball, butcher the forward movement and get scored on easily from the intercepts. Not that hard to predict. Big Demon says: Unfortunately Collingwood will win because they have a lot more to play for. We will be good in parts but really the season is well over so we will have to put up with those bell

    WHAT, NO BLOOD? by George on the Outer

    The feeling when turning up to the MCG on a Saturday night to play a top four side in Richmond, while the Melbourne sits cemented in close proximity to the bottom of the table is like attending the Colosseum in Ancient Roman times. The expectation is that a bloodbath is about to occur. There are 100,000 Richmond members and 50,000 Melbourne members, and despite the fact that it turned out to be a wet night after half-time, a crowd of only 37K bothered to turn up. That should never have happ
