How many positions has Darren Crocker had over the years?GUN ROOS ASSISTANTS ON THE MOVE
North Melbourne assistant coach Leigh Tudor will depart the club, continuing the Roos’ coaching makeover.
Tudor, 49, was contracted for next season but yesterday told club officials he would move on.
Tudor was in charge of the forwards this season but was overlooked in favour of Rhyce Shaw for the interim coaching position.
After successful stints at Geelong, St Kilda and Sydney, he is certain to find a new job at a rival club.
Long-time assistant Darren Crocker is also set to move into a new position in the football department, while development coach Aaron Greaves also parted ways.
The Roos are on the hunt for an experienced assistant coach or director of coaching to help partner new senior coach Shaw.
Chief executive Carl Dilena thanked Tudor for his six years’ service.
“Leigh brought an incredible amount of premiership experience and knowledge to North,” Dilena said.
“He has been a tremendous asset to the club and we sincerely thank him for his service, and wish him all the best for the future.”
Finally, thank you!! Am sure it will all come out in the wash. The guys that we're looking at will do us mighty fine of that I'm sure.This may or may not be acurate, but if Tudor was interested in the caretaker job/senior job and they gave it to Shaw anyway that would say even more about the impact Rhyce has made before and since arriving. Tudor’s record and experience at North made him the natural choice and this move might suggest he didn’t choose to take a back seat.
Alternatively whatever you didn't do was perfect.I used to play indoor cricket with Lurker when we were kids.
If I had known what he was going to do in the 94 prelim, I would have busted his knee.
Anyway, good luck wherever you go Lurker.
