THE Werribee Tigers have signed assistant coach Paul Satterley as their senior coach for next season, replacing Simon Atkins who quit the club at the end of the season.

Satterley's appointment follows a swag of coaching moves in the VFL this week, with Coburg Tigers also signing a former club assistant  Adam Potter  as senior coach to replace David Newett, who was upgraded to Richmond's coaching panel for next season.

"Adam has impressed the club with his enthusiasm throughout the interview process and is greatly looking forward to his return to the Burgers," Coburg general manager Lee Fraser said.

Collingwood has appointed Tarkyn Lockyer to coach its VFL team, replacing Gavin Brown who has crossed to become an assistant at Carlton.

Port Melbourne coach Gary Ayres was recently interviewed for a mentoring role at the Brisbane Lions and could be on the move.

Ayres recently signed a two-year deal to stay at the Borough but has a clause in his contract to leave if a desired AFL position comes up.

However, North Ballarat premiership coach Gerard FitzGerald has rejected a swag of offers at AFL level to remain in a semi development role at North Melbourne while coaching the Roosters, who have lost premiership stars Stevie Dinnell and Dan Feery who have plans to travel overseas.

Three-time premiership skipper Shaune Moloney recently retired.
