Scott's leak admission as Roos exit confirmed


//

Brad Scott says he's "disappointed" that news of his Kangaroos coaching exit leaked before he'd had the chance to tell his players, manager and family.

Yet the outgoing mentor said that he had watched the Shinboners go from a club with serious problems to one with a bright future during his time in charge.

Scott fronted a press conference on Saturday at Arden Street to confirm that he was standing down as North Melbourne coach, a job he began in 2010 and held for 211 games. He said

"

Saturday's upset of the Western Bulldogs gave Scott a winning farewell, but the Kangaroos are still struggling at 3-7 this season.

Scott said that he had no immediate plans to coach elsewhere, but there will no doubt be suitors for his services.

The dual Brisbane Lions premiership player said that his North Melbourne stint had begun with a raft of challenges, including "quite an underspend in the football department payments and resourcing".

"It's only in hindsight that I realise the obstacles and the challenges that we faced 10 years ago have really been the making of me and have really shown who I am as a person, and certainly who I am as a coach," Scott said.

"Often in these situations, clubs are left in turmoil. Right at the moment, North Melbourne's future is anything but tumultuous. We have removed all the impendiments that existed 10 years ago and there's nothing but blue sky for North Melbourne."

Scott said he has acted in the club's best interests by stepping down now. The club will now have the opportunity to make an early start on finding a replacement.

Sydney's John Longmire, West Coast's Adam Simpson, and former Swans and Melbourne boss Paul Roos have been flagged as possibilities. Rhyce Shaw will act as caretaker coach this season.

MORE TO COME...
