Geelong Football League premiership coach Dale Amos will take charge of the Cats VFL team.
Amos replaces Leigh Tudor, who accepted an assistant coaching position with St Kilda.
“Dale is well known to us and we are excited that we have been able to secure him as our VFL coach,” Geelong’s general manager of football operations Neil Balme said.
“He has an excellent track record and is a quality person. We think with the structure that we have in place he is an ideal person to coach our VFL team.”
Amos said he was thrilled to be heading to Skilled Stadium.
“This is great opportunity and I am excited to be joining such a great club and to be working with such well regarded coaches, players and staff,” Amos said.
“The club’s efforts over the past couple of seasons are well known and I am looking forward to playing my role in ensuring we develop our young players so that they realise their potential and give themselves the best opportunity to be good AFL players.”
The 31-year-old Amos led South Barwon to three GFL flags (2005, 2006, 2007). Amos\' teams won 77 per cent of their 102 matches over his five seasons at the helm.
Amos played over 200 games with South Barwon and was a member of three premiership teams (2001, 2005, 2007). He also played 36 games with St Arnaud in the North Central League and spent the 2000 season on St Kilda’s VFL list, playing 12 games.
