SENIOR-coach-in-waiting Blake Caracella will complete this season at Richmond before moving on from Tigerland.

AFL.com.au understands Caracella, who is the club's offensive coach, and the Tigers have agreed to an amicable parting of ways.

He re-signed for two seasons at the Tigers in October last year, after joining them ahead of the 2017 season then performing a pivotal role in the club ending its premiership drought.

Caracella played 187 games for Essendon, Brisbane and Collingwood, including being part of the Bombers' 2000 premiership and the Lions' 2003 flag.

There are two assistant coach openings at Essendon, with AFL.com.au reporting in July that opposition strategy coach Rob Harding and forwards coach Paul Corrigan were pursuing other opportunities.

Part of Harding's current role includes ball movement, an area Caracella has excelled in at Richmond.

The 42-year-old previously worked at Geelong from 2010-2016, including the Cats' 2011 premiership, and Collingwood between 2007 and 2009.

Caracella also went through the AFL's exclusive Level Four coaching course.
