Will we see a change of coach? Rivers is reportedly being chased by NM...

Meanwhile North have spoken to former Kangaroos midfielder Leigh Adams and Collingwood VFL coach Jared Rivers about working under Shaw in 2020.

Adams has left VFL club Coburg, where he had been a senior coach, and has been courted by several AFL clubs as he looks to enter the elite competition.

Who am I?

I am currently a senior coach of a VFL team and making it obvious that I’m trying to break back into an AFL club environment.

Prior to that I worked as a development coach. For an AFL Premiership winning team.

I worked as an AFL senior assistant. Under a four time Premiership winning senior coach. Twice.

I am an ex AFL senior coach myself. I won an AFL Premiership as senior Coach.

I am an ex AFL player. Was Captain. Was 2 x Best and Fairest. For Collingwood.

(Very curious ... why isn’t this bloke being snapped up by an AFL club ?!? Would have thought at the very least he’d be a worthy VFL coach for Collingwood?)

Damaged goods on a number of levels?

Not really seen as a company guy on many fronts from some reports after leaving previous clubs, although no real rumblings down at his current club I guess.

I'm guessing Rosco might find himself in a similar boat if someone doesn't jump at him this off-season - the age of the bristly, hard to get along with type of coach is almost over.

Coaches these days are accounted on how well they fit into a team as much as their coaching nous - not surprising when you see the ridiculous size of some of the off-field teams at some clubs.
