I was told last week that 2020 was going to be his last year and that has proved correct

Sorry to see Collo go. A quality coach. I wonder who will get the gig at Williamstown in 2021.

With all the assistant coaches from the AFL out of a job there would be no shortage of applicants I would imagine

A big hole to fill.

When he first started playing at Sandringham after coming from Hawthorn as a 20 Year old he was studying to be a teacher at Burwood Teachers College

Has he really coached 245 matches at Williamstown he has only been there for 6 seasons. That would be 41 games a season!!

Probably the biggest story of the season yet not one mention in either of the dailies printed editions.

Unfortunately shows how little interest there is in 2nd tier footy in this town.

Did Collo leave Sandy the year after winning the premiership as coach?

Yeah he had a dispute with the Club in 1998 after being thrashed by Springvale in the 2 EF by 68 pts and was sacked/left the club before the  1999 season He was replaced ly Graham Yeats as coach.

He only spent 3 seasons at Sandy in his long illustrious footy career but played in one premiership and coached another.and won a B&F - not a bad effort.
