News story just broken by Paul Amy on the VFL Hour on 1116 SEN. Damien Christensen has resigned as coach of Box Hill Hawks after 2 seasons.

Would this mean that he is leaving Hawthorn as well?

Didn't have the Best record from any of his Coaching, but was almost thrown in the deep end at Box Hill after a big cleanout and the begining of a rebuilding phase. Do you think he has been pushed into this, or maybe told his contract will not be renewed?

Also heard that Andy Collins has been offered a job with SANFL wooden Spoon recipients West Adelaide, what a blow for Coburg that would be, I hope he stays with the VFL.

Dang!!! Just read an article a week or so ago with Christensen saying he hopes he can keep on coaching Box Hill . . . taken the decision into his own hands! Wouldn't have minded seeing what he could have done, with the young batch of players over the last couple of years who to me (if they stick around) were about to start playing some good consistant footy!

Damien was well liked by the Box Hill players, but I guess his record has not been super, hence this result. Good luck to him with his next challenge in life.

Heard that Tony Liberatore was let go by Carlton . . . a possible return? Probably not, but geez i liked getting in and listening to Libba. Heard that David Dunbar's on the market . . . wouldn't mind getting someone like David Banfield, who coached Vermont, i think, to a flag this arfternoon. Who else looms as a possibility? Donald McDonald? Am i just living in the past?

Imagine the Banfield brothers coaching against each other in a Casey Vs. Box Hill game! I don't think Libba will, unfortunately I think his ego is at AFL level, and only ever used the VFL as a stepping stone. Not sure Stanga, do you think they would get someone with a Hawthorn link, or an independent coach?

Heard Richie Vandemburg mentioned . . . i just think that's a romantic notion! Doesn't come across as a senior coach to me! Not exactly sure how much imput Hawthorn has, but i'd just hope they'd get the best available coach! Look, hope it's not a Hawthorn person, they've been a good partner, but love to get a more Box Hill/ neutral flavour around the place. Andy Collins was different, had a VFA background, coached in the Eastern League and there was a big gap between his involvement at Hawthorn and Box Hill. There has always been a Box Hill/Hawthorn link . . . geographically, colours etc. but, give me Banfield. Possibly Rohan Welsh? Could bring his old mate Ronnie Delulio along as an assistant. Kevin Tibaldi would be interesting too! And one out of left field . . . David King; not the Box Hill player, but Port Melb/North Melb star! By the way, congrats to former Stangas Tys Collins and Adam Slater on their Div 2 EFL premiership this arvo! Won by a goal!
