North Melbourne continue the coaching cull with two assistants gone

North Melbourne have made more changes to their coaching panel in the wake of their disappointing 2020 with assistant coaches Heath Scotland and Jarred Moore parting ways with the Kangaroos.

Scotland joined the club at the start of this season as a development coach but has gone after just one year while Moore has been at the club since 2015 and was responsible for stoppages and the midfield this season.

Scotland and Moore were both former teammates of Shaw however Moore was already at the club when he arrived while Scotland was appointed at the start of last season.

The Kangaroos have undertaken a massive overhaul of the football department with Jade Rawlings – the brother of football boss Brady Rawlings – sacked with two years of a three-year contract remaining.

Line coaches Brendan Whitecross and Jared Rivers were stood down at the start of the COVID-19 shutdown as was respected VFL coach David Loader.

The club is looking to create a coaching panel to assist Rhyce Shaw who had a baptism of fire in his first season as full-time coach and delisted 11 players last week with the prospect of a director of coaching.

The club has also made public their desire to trade out key forward Ben Brown who is out of contract and told midfielder Shaun Higgins they were open to trading him if he can find a deal beyond 2021 with the veteran contracted until the end of next season.
