Yarrawonga Pigeon Brendan Fevola has been named the 2014 Ovens & Murray Interleague Coach.RACHEAL WILLETT February 18, 2014 3:55pm
Fevola said following the announcement he was in it for the long haul and had plans to see the league “back up to number one.”
“Hopefully I’ll be a laid back coach that makes it enjoyable and professional and something that everyone wants to be a part of,” Fevola said.
The Ovens & Murray announced Fevola would take over the role from interleague stalwart Matt Pendergast, who stepped down from the position at the end of last year.
It will be Fevola’s first foray into the coaching ranks but according to Ovens & Murray Football Netball League General Manager Aaron McGlynn, the 33 year old is determined to get the job done.
“He’s said all the right things. He’s passionate about the league and determined to help us get back to the top of the AFL Victoria Country standings,” Mr McGlynn said.
Fevola joined the Ovens & Murray Football Netball League with the Yarrawonga Pigeons in 2012 following an illustrious playing career in the AFL, including 204 senior matches, three All-Australian honours and two Coleman Medals as the AFL’s leading goal-kicker.
McGlynn said it was those credentials that were too hard to ignore.
“It is undoubtedly an exciting time for both the SS&A Ovens & Murray Football Netball League and Brendan himself,” Mr McGlynn said.
“It’s not every day you have someone with his profile and background knocking on your door saying he wants to coach”.
Fevola has accepted a one year deal as interleague coach with an option for two more.
During his first two seasons with the Pigeons he did not play at interleague level due to unavailability.
His first hit-out will be in May against the Hampden Football League.
