Caruso calls time as coach

LISTEN UP: Mick Caruso delivers a pre-match address to his players after announcing he will step down at the end of the season.

MICK Caruso says he is unlikely to coach again after announcing he would step down from the Wangaratta Rovers’ top job at the end of the Ovens and Murray season.

Caruso announced to the playing group on Thursday night that his third year in charge at the WJ Findlay Oval would be his last regardless of how the Hawks finished the year.

The Hawks’ club legend said growing work commitments had played a part in his decision, adding that he no longer had enough time to “do the job properly”.

“I think the main reason for my decision was that I couldn’t commit to do the number of hours required to do the job properly,” he said.

“It’s a fairly big commitment these days – it’s a 12-month job.

“There are a lot of things that need to be done off the field during the week and not just on game day.”
