Ricky makes coaching return

GEELONG football great Ricky O’Toole will make a return to coaching with Colac league club Birregurra.

The 40-year-old was unveiled as the Saints new mentor on Tuesday morning.

A Corio junior, O’Toole famously made his GFLsenior debut as a 15-year-old with St Joseph’s in 1993.

He returned to the Devils twice – following his stint at Joeys and after guiding Newcomb to the 2007 Bellarine premiership alongside Matt Bruhn.

O’Toole – the only player to win the senior league best-and-fairest in all three Geelong region competitions- also coached East Geelong and finished his playing career with the Eagles in 2016 after more than 400 appearances at senior level.
