Statement from Cherie O'Neill Bendigo Thunder head coach.
After much deliberation I have made the decision not to continue as the Head Coach of the Grill'd Bendigo Thunder.
The decision comes after a lot of thought and discussion (and plenty of tears!) I have made this choice in order to try some different aspects of coaching in order to help me develop.
I have been with Bendigo Thunder from the start (2011) as a player, trainer and coach but I feel between family and work I just couldn't make the same commitment in 2018. I definitely still be around at the club as its a massive part of my life and my family has grown up with the whole group.
The Grill'd Bendigo Thunder will make a statement shortly
