Heidelberg statement: Frank Raso


Published on Monday, November 18, 2019

Heidelberg has issued a statement announcing the resignation of senior coach Frank Raso.

Raso coached the Tigers for the past two seasons, which included a second-place finish on the Meadows Greyhounds Division 1 ladder this year.

Read the club statement below:

“This morning Frankie Raso notified the club that he would be stepping aside as Senior Coach, effective immediately, due to matters unrelated to football.

Frankie has had a really positive impact on our Club and it is unfortunate and disappointing that he is unable to continue in the role for 2020. We’d like to thank him for his commitment and dedication to the players while he was in the role.

A particular feature of Frankie’s tenure was the support and development of our younger players, standing us in really good stead for the years ahead. We would like to wish Frankie and his family all the very best.

Senior Assistant Coach Danny Nolan will act as interim Coach while we recruit for a Senior Coach.

Keep an eye out for the advertisement in the coming days through our Social Media and other football channels including the NFNL and AFL Vic.”
