GEELONG Amateur has become the first BFL club to officially start searching for a new coach for 2022 following the resignation of Kane Tenace.

Ammos says family reasons are behind the former Geelong speedster’s decision to step down.

“We want to thank Kane for his professionalism, dedication and direction as coach,” president Simon Farrell said in a statement.

Tenace, who played locally with St Mary’s, replaced the combination of Rowan McSparron and Jarrod Young at the end of 2018.

He guided Amateur to the minor premiership in his first season in charge before being bundled out of the finals with losses to eventual grand finalists Barwon Heads and Torquay.

However, 2021 has been a tougher proposition, with Ammos notching just the three wins in the opening nine rounds – two of those against Queenscliff.

Football Director Gavan Clark will lead the search for Tenace’s replacement.
