His departure follows that of Eddie Betts, who worked at the club part-time this season and was instrumental in the career resurgence of small forward Tyson Stengle.

Additionally, the club’s long-time head of football Simon Lloyd is weighing up a move to North Melbourne to be the club’s new CEO, replacing Ben Amarfio in the role.

Lloyd has filled the head of football role since 2018 and was a director of coaching at the club prior to that.

The two departures – and the expected departure of Lloyd – add to an already significant departure on-field with the retirement of premiership captain Joel Selwood.

Selwood has since taken up a part-time role with Melbourne Storm in the NRL.

Geelong added a 12th premiership trophy to its cabinet in 2022, defeating Sydney comfortably to claim the second flag under Chris Scott, who arrived at the club in 2011.

Scott is contracted until the end of the 2024 season.
