HAWTHORN has added some extra experience to its coaching panel with Robert Harvey joining the club.
Harvey has spent the past 10 seasons as an assistant at Collingwood and was also the stand-in coach for nine games this year after Nathan Buckley was sacked.
The 50-year-old's appointment completes Hawthorn's new-look coaching line-up under Sam Mitchell following the recent additions of Andrew Collins, David Hale, Adrian Hickmott as well as the re-signing of Chris Newman.
“With Robert Harvey comes a wealth of experience in the football landscape,” head of football Rob McCartney said.
“We believe his coaching style and method really complement the other members of our group, which gives a strong and holistic feel to our coaching squad.
“He has built an impressive coaching resume over the past 13 years, with involvement in a number of high-performing football programs, including the caretaker senior coaching role at Collingwood in 2021.
“While Robert will bring his highly renowned football IQ and technical nous to Hawthorn, we are equally excited about the significant cultural impact he will have as we plan for the future success of our football club.”
