If that’s the case I would think the whole league would be told at the same time?

Gavin Colville to step down as Senior Coach
Gavin Colville has decided to step down as Senior Coach of the West Adelaide Football Club.
After beginning his time at West Adelaide as the coach of the reserves team in 2016, Gavin departs the club after three seasons as Senior Coach. Colville was still contracted to coach in 2021 but has decided the time is right for him to move on.
West Adelaide CEO Ben Hopkins said Gavin had put all he could into the role.
“Gavin has been an unbelievable leader and an asset to our club. We are disappointed to see him go, but understand and support the decision he has made.”
Hopkins also paid tribute to Colville’s contribution in saying “Gavin’s dedication to the Club has been outstanding and in a year interrupted by COVID, he has worked tirelessly to ensure the culture of the group remains strong. While it was a tough year on the field, Gavin has played a huge role in the development of the playing group.”
We would like to thank Gavin for everything he has contributed to the Club and we wish him and his family all the best in the future.
The Club will announce the process for recruiting the Senior Coach in the near future.

I hope it is sooner rather than later as he must be involved in the VERY IMPORTANT recruiting of league players.

Well not sure what every one else’s thoughts are.
But mine are.
Find it a bit funny that Gav decided it was time to move on but didn’t say anything in the emails to members. Only Hopkins said anything. Makes me think some one was pushed out?
And with me thinking like that, I’ll go out on a limb and welcome Micheal Godden to the club.
Bloody hope u can get the club on track

Just a wild guess but I'm thinking the 'process for recruiting the senior coach' might be advertising the position, interviewing the applicants and appointing one of them.

Well, firstly I feel sorry for Gavin, not much went right for him in his time with us.
But there are a lot of AFL-experienced assistant coaches out of a job right now so we'd be well advised to look far and wide.

I agree with Jamo.
Godden coached the Eagles for 9 seasons. They got a flag in 2011 but didn’t win one after that.
I found the Eagles to be one of the most negative low scoring teams in the comp under his reign.
This year they are far more attacking under Jade Sheedy.

Colville was contracted for next season.
Does this mean that the club have to pay him out?
The way it had been reported, it was Gavin who decided to walk away.....

Well if Gavin walked under his own decision to do so. Then no he would not get paid his last contracted year.

Have to feel for him though. Just like the "Weeds" tenure. Had nothing to work with.
