North Melbourne has formed a coaching selection panel, with Paul Roos joining the club in its search for a new head coach.
Roos will join North CEO Ben Amarfio, GM football Brady Rawlings, Board member and football director Glenn Archer, Board member Sonja Hood and Centre for Leadership Advantage co-founder and director, Terry Coyne.
The experienced Roos joins North after senior coaching stints at the Sydney Swans (2002-2010) and Melbourne (2014-2016). His successful coaching career which yielded a premiership in 2005, followed a stellar playing career that included 356 games over 17 seasons with Fitzroy (1982-1994) and Sydney (1995-1998).
North chairman, Ben Buckley, said he has full confidence in the coaching panel, which brings an array of different experiences.
“We are thrilled to have Paul join our coaching panel, alongside Ben, Brady, Sonja and Glenn,” Buckley told North Media.
“Our aim is to identify and appoint the best coach available. We firmly believe we have established a well-rounded coaching panel to help us identify the person that can bring us success and build a foundation for the future.
“We have been working on a shortlist of candidates and will be conducting interviews shortly. We expect to be in a position to announce the successful candidate in due course.”
Paul Roos is managed exclusively by The Fordham Company.
