Paul Lynch has stood down as coach of Ocean Grove Football Club after three seasons at the helm.
Lynch made the finals once in his two seasons and has stood down after finishing sixth this season citing family reasons for his decision.
Lynch informed the leadership group Tuesday night.
The former Geelong player and dual GFL premiership coach decided to step away from the coaching role to spend more time with his young family.
“Paul has laid a foundation for the future of which he can be justifiably proud, increasing professionalism amongst the group and providing senior exposure to our talented young juniors,” OGFNC said on its Facebook site.
“The club would like to sincerely thank Paul for his efforts and commitment, and wish him and his family all the best for the future.
“The Ocean Grove Football Netball Club will begin the process of searching for a new senior coach immediately.”
