John Pratt will coach CDHBU outright next year.
Pratt and Mick Collins co-coached the Power this season with Collins stepping down but is set to remain as a player.
High-profile recruit Kyle Docherty who signed over the weekend has been appointed an assistant coach.
Pratt arrived at the Power this season after a coaching stint with South Mildura in the Sunraysia league.
The solidly built midfielder thrived in the Hume league and impressed club officials with his leadership qualities.
He was instrumental in the Power returning to finals for the first time since 2016 before the season was abandoned.
Power football manager Paul Rippingale said Pratt has fitted into the club seamlessly this season and paid tribute to the outstanding service of Collins.
Collins has coached the Power since 2017.
"Mick has done a fantastic job for this football club and feels the time is right to step aside," Rippingale said.
"So John will coach outright next year.
"Kyle has jumped aboard over the weekend as an assistant coach.
"We are excited to have John as coach and worked very hard to get him to the club for this season.
"John has previous coaching experience and has embraced the football club 100 per cent since he arrived.
"He is very passionate about the club and what we are striving to achieve and be a finals force.
"So we thought it was the right time for John to have a crack at coaching on his own."

Rippingale said Collins was a popular figure around the club.
"Mick is the glue that has held this group together I guess you could say," Rippingale said.
"Personally I can't speak highly enough of Mick Collins.
"Mick is going nowhere and is still going to play and be part of the football department.
"Mick wants this club to succeed as much as we all do.
"But it's a new era now with John who has got a few different ideas that he wants to implement and we want to support him."
