North Melbourne has overhauled its coaching department and is on the hunt for a new list manager for next season.

The Kangaroos have appointed former Collingwood and Carlton star and Darley coach Heath Scotland to a development role.

Ex-Roo tough nut Leigh Adams will also join the club in a development position.

There will also be two new faces in the divisional line coaching ranks, with long-time Melbourne assistant coach Jade Rawlings coming on as new midfield coach.

Jared Moore will be in charge of stoppages.

Former Hawk Brendan Whitecross will be promoted from a development position into a line coaching position at North.


The changes round out the moves will which will significantly revamp North's coaching box for 2020 under new senior coach Rhyce Shaw.

List chief Michael McMahon, who arrived at the club from Geelong Cats, will leave at the end of the exchange period.

McMahon arrived at the club in 2016 but the Roos have been unable to land a big-name star recruit in-line with its strategy over the past three years.

North Melbourne’s new footy boss Brady Rawlings is orchestrating the changes while he continues in his role as West Coast list manager.

North poached Rawlings from the Eagles mid-year to head up its football department.

Star is a term bandied about too willingly in my opinion

Twinkletoes is our in. He's laid the foundation. We know Hodge told his wife 2 years only and that's how long they leased their house for.
The problem is his wife’s loving living in short shorts and singlet through the winter months and the kids are enjoying playing outside. I suspect they’ll be extending their stay, despite their initial plan to return by the time their eldest lad Cooper was to start yr 7. As for homes owned, they still own their house near us, as well as the Hawthorne QLD one. He loves Fagan as a bloke and I reckon he’ll remain there to dip his foot into coaching before any possible future move back home.

So, not even the lure of your kids playing together is enough?
