Coaching Appointments Announcement Season 2018

I would firstly like to thank Dean Hayes, Mark Giuliano and Whitlam ‘Wag’ Malkoun for their hard work in assisting me with the interview process this year. With 12 positions to fill in season 2018, it was always going to be a lengthy process and we were very fortunate this year to have received 20 applications.

We are also very proud to announce a few first-year coaches and former Bullants players to the coaching panel for season 2018 - past Bullants players Marc Botoulas and Adrian De Sando for the U15’s, Josh Bruzzese U14’s, Nic Zonta Colts Assistant Coach and Simon O’Connell Youth Girls Assistant Coach. Also a big welcome to Michael Pivetta who is taking on the coaching role of the Youth Girls Coach and welcome back Dan O’Halloran as the Tackers coach in 2018. Well done to our returning coaches in Paul Clohesy U10’s, Scott Maddison U11’s, Pat Brooks U12’s, George Cotsonis U13’s Girls, Phil Smith U13’s and Marty Fitzpatrick Colts Coach.

The second Tackers coaching role is still open and will be based on registered players in 2018, but if you feel that you’d like to coach our youngest Bullants, please contact me on 0418 133 580 or via email at
