ELLIOT Jones will step down as Murray United's coach at the end of the season.
Jones, who has spent two years at the helm, has cited increasing work and family commitments as the reasons for his decision.
He will continue with the club in a non-coaching role.
"The values, beliefs and positive legacy Elliot leaves behind will forever be in-grained in the club's culture and DNA," club chairman Darren Yates said.
"He stands proud along with other key members of the club as being an integral initiator in building a club from nothing to one that is now well-known and recognised across Victoria and Australia wide."
Jones has been a key figure at Murray United since 2015 when he joined the club as assistant coach of the under-20s.
He became the head coach of the side in 2016 when he led the team to its first NPL runners-up pennant for the club.
Murray United host Werribee City on Saturday.
