AUSSIE RULES: Applications have opened for the coaching role at Maroochydore Australian Football Club, following Brett Maloney's decision to step down after the senior side's second-straight grand final loss.
Maloney, who spent the past four seasons at the club and guided the Roos to a minor premiership this season, called an end to his time as senior coach to spend time with his young family.
As the club prepares to enter the new-look South East Queensland competition in division one, it is seeking a senior coach (playing or non-playing) to guide the squad towards its first premiership since 1996.
It is also seeking an under-18/19 coach and a football manager.
In what was a fantastic season for the club, four out of its five senior sides made grand finals, with the women's team bringing home the premiership cup earlier this month.
And while it mightn't be the job for sacked Lions coach Justin Leppitsch, the club's Facebook followers have taken a keen interest in the role.
"With a great list of players, some of the best facilities in Qld and strong off-field performance, Maroochydore are looking for someone who can continue to deliver on-field success to a group that has come within a whisker the previous two seasons,” the job description reads.
There is no doubt getting back to grand final day will be a much tougher task, with the Queensland Football Association Division 1 competition set to feature 10-teams in South East Queensland, acting as the region's second-tier competition behind the Queensland Australian Football League.
Coaches who wish to throw their hat into the ring should send a resume and cover letter outlining their coaching experience to email@example.com by 5pm on October 10.
Club president Matt Bury couldn't be reached for comment this morning.
