The ABC has lengthy coverage and audio of sacked Brumbies coach Andy Friend and the reasons behind his shock expulsion from the club.
This quote seems particularly telling of what’s gone wrong:
“The best programs in sport are athlete-focused, coach-driven and admin-supported, and unfortunately that’s not the case at [the Brumbies].
“It became evident over the last few weeks, it’s been even probably longer that that.”
Sadly sacking the coach is a move in the wrong direction to reach that paradigm.
