PORT Adelaide has made a change to its coaching department, with the Power's development coach Jacob Surjan leaving the club.

The 32-year-old had been in a development coaching role for the past three years, working mostly with the club's younger defenders.

Surjan spent 14 years in various roles with the Power, starting as a player, administration and coaching.

He played 121 games over nine seasons for the Power before retiring at the end of 2012.

Surjan then became the Power's SANFL development manager and its inaugural academy coach.

He was elevated to the development coaching position in 2015.

The Power have not announced if it will find a replacement for Surjan.
