St Kilda have parted ways with Simon McPhee, Rohan Welsh and Lindsay Gilbee, with the trio of coaches all at the club for at least the past three seasons.

McPhee joined in 2012 and was the coach of the Sandringham Zebras in the VFL, before moving into a development coaching role and then as the midfield line coach in 2018.

Welsh arrived at the club in 2015 and spent three years in charge of the backline, before moving to the forward line this season.

Gilbee came aboard in 2013 as a development coach, and also became the coach of the Zebras in 2017.

The trio join Adam Kingsley as assistant coaches to depart the club this week, with Kingsley already confirmed as an assistant under Damien Hardwick at Richmond for 2019.

“Like Adam Kingsley who we farewelled earlier in the week, these three men are all quality people who have put in a tremendous amount of work for the club over a long period of time,” St Kilda's General Manager of Football Simon Lethlean told

“The assistant coaching role is one that often goes unrewarded and we want to acknowledge their commitment to the Saints and wish them best for the future.”
