Kane sharing the love around the coaching group.
Head of football Chris Davies was determined to keep his coaching group together.
“With 45 players on our list, we made a conscious decision to bring as many coaches back as we could in order to make sure our players continue to develop,” he told The Advertiser.
That decision and the willingness of the coaching group to accept significant pay cuts is vital to why the Power has been the most consistent side this season and the ladder leader after nine rounds.
All of Port Adelaide’s coaches are strong personalities who bring different strengths and unique styles. It is a credit to senior coach Ken Hinkley who has given each individual a strong voice and ownership of their own area. Hinkley ultimately makes the final decisions, but it’s always in consultation with the panel that he trusts.
Port Adelaide has four coaches among its coaching group that are destined to be senior AFL coaches. The club possesses the most accomplished coaching panel in the AFL.
