Mark Mickan Announcement

From West Adelaide Web Site


MARK MICKAN ANNOUNCEMENT
Published on: Aug 26 2017


The West Adelaide Football Club advises that the Club’s Board has decided not to renew Coach Mark Mickan’s contract for season 2018.

In only his second year of coaching West Adelaide, Mark led us to our first premiership in 32 years, an achievement that stands out in our history. Following that success, our playing list was significantly affected by the AFL draft, injuries and retirements.

However, our results over the past two seasons have been very disappointing with 7 wins from 36 games. Although we are encouraged by the improvement shown by several emerging players over the latter part of the season, we strongly feel the time is right for a new direction to meet the challenges ahead. Mark will continue to work with the club on the 2017 season review and recommendations for 2018.

The club is grateful to Mark for his many achievements over the past 4 years. He leaves the coaching role with the club well placed to look to the future with confidence. He is, and always will be, a favorite son of the West Adelaide Football Club family and we look forward to continuing our strong relationship with Mark in the years ahead.

Lee Harradine
President WAFC

If this isn't trolling I've never seen it.

What is it with this site ? Pass a comment and its trolling unless you are sucking up someones ****. Get over it and post sensibly.

Your post is the troll actually.

Are we all supposed to guess which sentence offended you, or are we supposed to plead with you to tell us? It's quintessential trolling.
I'd like to see your argument on how my post is trolling.

Given the calibre of bloke Mickan is, I imagine it would have been an agonising call to make for the club.

Not so much the need for it perhaps, but to actually do it, especially after toasting ultimate success only 2 years ago.

Let's be honest Mark was not renewed because of his health, can not be the win loss record over the last two years given the players West have lost since the premiership....I'd like to thank him for the effort he put in at the bay & moulded a team that should have won a premiership, maybe not 2008 when we were runners up but in 2009 when I believe we were clearly the best team & blew it big time

bayman in 3 out of his 4 years we finished 9th, 10th and 9th so I'm pretty confident it's performance-based. I doubt any coach in SANFL history has been reappointed on that record.
