Ex-Fremantle coach Mark Harvey will not join cross-town rivals West Coast


AXED Fremantle coach Mark Harvey will not be joining cross-town rival West Coast for the 2012 season.

Eagles' senior coach John Worsfold met with the former Freo coach to discuss a possible role following Harvey's sudden sacking that paved the way for Ross Lyon's move from St Kilda.

Harvey had been linked to a possible move to West Coast as a senior assistant to Worsfold, who was recently reappointed for a further two years, after the departure of trusted lieutenant Peter Sumich to Fremantle.

However, Worsfold told Melbourne radio station 3AW the talks had not been fruitful.

"Peter Sumich was my senior assistant up until last year, but we changed our coaching structure around a fair bit, so that position didn't really exist any more," Worsfold said on Monday.

"I spoke to Harvs about that and about the possible roles that we were looking [to fill] and they weren't going to fit in with the experience that he would bring to the club and where he wanted to take the next step in football.

"We approached him just to find out where he was at and what his thoughts were around his continuation in the game. Both parties were very clear with where it all sat."

Harvey was shown the door by the Fremantle board after his fourth full season at the helm of the club. He initially took over the role from Chris Connolly, who resigned with seven games remaining in the 2007 season, and guided Freo back to the finals in 2010.

Fremantle started the 2011 season well before a high injury toll saw Harvey's team miss out on a spot in the finals
