The Adelaide Crows would like to thank James Podsiadly for his contribution to the Club as he leaves to pursue outside business interests.
As an assistant coach, he mentored the Club’s defenders in the past two seasons but has decided to focus on a different career path next year.
Crows Head of Football Brett Burton thanked Podsiadly for his contribution since crossing as a player from Geelong ahead of the 2014 season.
“James is a quality person with a sharp football brain and he gave our Club great service as a player and most recently as a member of the coaching panel,” Burton said.
“He was keen to stay involved and we discussed several possibilities but ultimately he has other life goals and interests to fulfil.
“We wish James and his wife Claire all the best for their future plans.”
Experienced duo Ben Hart and Josh Francou have been added to the coaching panel with specific roles to be allocated once the coaching panel is finalised.
The Club is currently conducting interviews for a development coach to replace Nathan van Berlo, who joined West Coast last month.
