Schueller to Geelong

Justin Schueller announced as Supercats coach for next 3 years.

I personally believe this is a great appointment and a perfect fit for Justin. It will be interesting to see what changes they make to the roster for next season.

Don't expect any local kids to get a go. Just expect all NBL fringe players to get signed.

Well, that is totally against what a merger of the Associations stands for! Why merge and create a huge Association if not to provide a pathway, which is what Schueller's first job should be to support the local talent and start sorting out his best local options?

You mean that there is no player budget beyond the imports, that budget?

Leon has been a great asset for Supercats and seems to have been treated poorly by Supercats Management with surprise tactics and bias against to bring in Schueller.

Clearly an uneducated move by Mark Neld, who in fairness has limited exposure and experience in the Australian Basketball landscape. Questions have to be asked; Was this a BV appointment???? or have United had a hand in Leon O'neil fate.

Replacing a coach with a rival who has a lesser record, had access to a way bigger player budget and still failed and has no ethical or passionate ties to Geelong is really poor......……….., I smell a rat!

All Schueller wants is a stop over for his next Job, Great work Kilsyth for recognising this and getting rid of Cash grabbing coaches who don't care about anything else but themselves. Leon O'neil is the opposite, loyal, genuine, good coach and great person!

Poor form Supercats!

Nicely said and could not be more spot on. Leon has been shafted, with the team he had this year to make finals was an incredible achievement. Hoping another association picks Leon up.

Loyalty is not around in any form of business any more. Sport probably the worst of the lot.

One coach with big budget who fails replaces coach with small budget that does better, you work it out.

Loyalty lol. Never saw him at anything other then a SEABL or Nbl1 game. Not at vjbl, not at clinics, never at domestic. Bring on Justin and let's hope his contract has precision to connect with the Juniors.

Cash grabbing coaches - being paid to do a job at the near professional level is not allowed now?

This is crazy, coaches need to be paid too! Time away from family, putting up with non-coaches on forum boards. I don't know all the background but money is money if Geelong see it fit to pay the man they will pay him. Results industry, its what are the results that the club wants.

Watkins would probably want to take over as he would think no one else would be good enough.
And it would be his way or the highway.

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.
