Geelong will welcome again two-time AFL premiership participant Shannon Byrnes as a improvement coach.
Byrnes will be a part of fellow Cats premiership gamers James Kelly and Harry Taylor in returning to Kardinia Park.
After he retired from enjoying in 2014, Byrnes grew to become Melbourne’s participant improvement supervisor and has helped mould the staff that broke their 57-year premiership drought.
“Shannon loved a wonderful enjoying profession with the Cats and he has been on the forefront of participant improvement on the Demons for the previous seven years,” Geelong soccer boss Simon Lloyd stated.
“To have the ability to welcome Shannon again to the membership is critical.
“Shannon brings experience within the participant improvement space, is a robust relationship builder and has a deep love of the membership.”
Byrnes, 37, performed 108 video games and kicked 100 objectives for Geelong between 2004-12. He was a member of their 2007 and ’09 premiership groups.
He then ended his profession with two seasons at Melbourne, enjoying 23 video games.
Kelly might be an assistant coach and Taylor will head Geelong’s medical and conditioning division.
Fellow former Cat Matthew Egan can be returning to the membership as head of participant improvement, whereas Geelong have signed legendary Carlton and Adelaide goalsneak Eddie Betts as a improvement coach.
