Lovett Steps Down As Casey Coach
The Casey Scorpions have today confirmed that senior coach Brett Lovett has resigned as senior coach.
Lovett led the Scorpions to the minor premiership and was named VFL coach of the year in 2012.
Scorpions General Manager Brian Woodman said Lovett had made an outstanding contribution in his one season with the club.
``We’re disappointed lose such a fine football person, but we understand his reasons,’’ Woodman said.
``It’s about him wanting to spend more time with his family and also putting more in to his nursery business.
``Brett is first and foremost a genuine family man so we can see how he’s come to this decision.
``He’s a tremendous coach and he had an enormous impact with Casey Scorpions. He was highly respected in the way he dealt with players and staff, with a welcoming and sincere approach to all he came across.
``He’s a players’ coach and that’s why we were successful this year.
``It goes without saying we’re thankful for his contribution and we wish him well with all his future endeavours.’’
Woodman said Casey would work with alignment partner Melbourne to identify a suitable replacement.
