A great appointment for Geelong, Schueller has a proven track record of recruiting talent which is far supreme to O'Neill's. Leon has had 5 years at the helm of the Supercats and while he has made the playoffs every year he hasn't be able to produce a championship for the club. There comes a time when it's clear that a coach simply doesn't have that capability and it looks like Geelong have come to that conclusion with Leon.
He hasn't developed any local talent in his time at the helm of the SEABL program so they argument that he was truly invested in the Supercats isn't a fair statement, he was invested in the SEABL program, thats it. Leon didn't look engaged in games this season, disinterested and lazy on the sidelines.
He's relied on the talent of a handful of players during his time to get it done, not his great coaching. Life is easy when you have Nathan Herbert, Gatlin, Owusu etc to rely on to make plays.
A positive change for the club overall in a men's program which had become a little stale the last couple of years. They didn't get a win this season against anyone above them on the ladder, they won the games they were meant to win, that's it.
