Seymour coach Brent Colbert has announced his plans to stand down at the end of the season.
Colbert, who’s in his fourth season as a player-coach at the club, said an increasing workload in his full-time work made it impossible for him to continue coaching in 2018.
Club president Craig Velt said the club had been in talks with Colbert for some time but was unable to find a solution.
He said the club was thankful for all Colbert’s efforts and was supportive of his decision.
The Telegraph understands Colbert isn’t ready to hang up his boots just yet though, and he intends to continue playing in 2018.
At this stage it’s uncertain who’ll take over the reins as coach at the club in 2018.
With the Lions in good form and poised to make a finals appearance in 2017, the role is expected to attract a number of eligible suitors.
