The only Southern Inland team yet to confirm its coaching setup for 2016 is hoping to make an announcement by the end of the week.
Tumut are searching for a replacement for Tim Graham, who has decided to step down from the role after four seasons.
Applications for the position closed over the weekend and Bulls president Will Reynolds is confident they will found the right man to fill Graham’s boots.
“We didn’t get a huge amount of applicants but there is a couple there that would be well-deserving coaches,” Reynolds said.
“We just have to check that all committee agree with which way to go.”
The Bulls have received applications from inside and outside of the club.
Tumut enjoyed one of its best seasons, finishing the regular season in third before successive finals losses.
Reynolds is looking for the new coach to build on the success Graham has brought to the club.
“They are massive shoes (to fill),” Reynolds said.
“Tim took the club such a long way and he developed the players to be able to adapt to a game plan instead of just playing an older style football game.”
Graham will continue to play with the club.
The Bulls are also working to develop improved training facilities at Jarrah Park.
The bulk of the earthworks on the ground have been completed and Reynolds anticipates it will help improve the condition of the Bulls’ main ground.
“It’s only a junior size field or training field but it wil help lessen the load during the football season,” he said.
