“On behalf of the football club, I want to thank Hayden for his significant contribution to Essendon during his 11 years as both a player and coach,” Richardson said.

“Although it is sad to see Hayden leave, it is a great opportunity for him at Collingwood in a more senior role.

A more snr role? So it's an upgrade?

Interesting spin

He's taking over from Tarkyn Lockyer I think? Lockyer was the Head of Academy, boss of the VFL coaches and academy coaches and other coaching assistants other than the senior coaching staff (Bucks and his four assistants).

I don't know whether that's like being a senior assistant at Essendon or more like a parallel version of what Dan Richardson does? Is it administrative management or an actual coaching role? :shrug:

So who's in charge of which line now?

Woosha: Head Coach
Truck: Team Defence
Harves: Back Line
???: Midfield
???: Forward
Caracella: Opposition Analyst
Pops: Development
M Corrigan: 1st to 3rd year players
Dan Jordan: VFL

Is Kelly moving into midfield coaching? Who are we getting as forward?
Don't think Caracella is Opposition Analyst, he's not a direct replacement for Harding's role.

I think it's similar. He's offensive gameplan maybe?
I'd say that in the same way Rutten was a 'team defence' type role, Caracella is a 'team offence' type role. Likely responsible for full ground structure and ball movement offensively is my guess.

Lockyer said he was only approached for the AFL job two weeks ago, so Skipworth would have only just been offered the role. Can’t blame him if higher role and more money. Good luck to him

Refused to get "onto the bus" because there weren't any seats left at the front.
