AZZI medallist Jamarl O’Sullivan will co-coach Henty next season.
O’Sullivan will share the top job with Brent Piltz who has coached the Swampies for the past two seasons.
Piltz said increasing work and family commitments was the major reason behind the decision.
“Coaching obviously takes up a lot of time and commitment,” Piltz said.
“As you get older with family and work commitments, your spare time seems to get tighter and tighter.
“So having co-coaches gives you a bit more flexibility.
“Jamarl has always had coaching ambitions so it makes sense and I think it will benefit the club.
“It also frees me up a little bit to work on other areas at the club like junior development.
“While Jamarl will provide a new voice and fresh ideas.”
Piltz said the majority of the list had already recommitted for next season, including classy forward Ryan Hon.
Hon missed the second half of the season after undergoing a shoulder reconstruction, robbing the Swampies of their most potent attacking weapon.
The Swampies have endured plenty of heartache over the past two seasons as they look to break a premiership drought stretching back to 1996.
They lost the grand final to Osborne last year by 31-points.
This season the Swampies finished second on the ladder but lost the second semi-final to Brock-Burrum by six points and the preliminary final to Holbrook by 10-points.
“Everybody is keen to have another crack next year and are pretty disappointed how we finished the season,” Piltz said.
“I think our list is good enough to win a flag but a few injuries have gone against us at the business end of the past two years.
“We have also got some talented juniors coming through like Isaac Muller, Sam Murray and Harrison Macreadie and all three look to have an exciting future.”
