Echuca United’s Scott Beattie will step down as coach after the 2014 season.
The Eagles announced a succession plan on Tuesday, which will see Beattie coach out the rest of the season before handing over the reigns to senior assistant Dean Moon.
Echuca United president Dale Zanella said the mutual agreement was reached late last week and the official news announced to the playing group on Tuesday.
‘‘It’s purely a succession plan going forward,’’ Zanella said.
‘‘Discussions were amicable, everyone walked away happy, there was nothing untoward.’’
Beattie’s injury frustrations, which included a season-ending ankle operation, was a deciding factor. 
A decision on Beattie’s playing future at Echuca United will be made at season’s end but Zanella was confident the outgoing coach will remain an Eagle in 2015.
