May well be the case but if they are going to go for an untried assistant I wouldnt mimd someone like him being there as a senior assistant. The bonds he build and respect he demands from his players cannot be argued and is exactly what a group the Gold Coast needsThere is zero chance of Ayres coaching Gold Coast.
That was the theory with Robert Shaw when he went to Adelaide. It backfired as he had no idea how to use the resources at his disposal after coming from Fitzroy. Ayres has at least had experience at two strong AFL clubs, so the choice could be worse. Maybe a two year deal with a succession plan, but personally I think they will go for an existing senior assistant due to the failed Eade situation.This is not exactly news, I think Gary nominates himself for these roles lol.
I hope he stays on at Port. He is brilliant with the young players and a great media/clubman. Makes himself very available to the members and fans. Great tactics, esp. since he operates on a shoestring down at the Borough.
A big budget and first class support would make him a great fit at the GC. As a Port supporter, I wish him the best (...as long as he doesn't end up at Frankston next year lol). He's been a great servant of our club and brought us two flags, the latter against all odds.
Correct me if I’m wrong but doesn’t the AFL own ALL AFL licences and as such all clubs?People need to remember the GC are an AFL club
The AFL club will choose the coach.
It will be someone who has done the AFL coaching course.
You obviously don't know Gary, the last thing he would want to do is slow downIve actually heard Mooroolbark in the EFL are trying to get Aryes to coach them next year.
Apparently he is strongly considering it. He lives out that way and wants to start to slow down.
