PORTLAND veteran Jarrod Holt is firming as Hamilton Kangaroos’ new coach for the 2014 season.
Holt coached the Tigers in their Hampden league debut season, guiding them to a sixth-placed finish.
The forward led Portland for its final two Western Border league campaigns.
Hamilton Kangaroos are expected to announce Holt as Mick Edmonds’ replacement as soon as today.
Portland revealed Holt’s decision to join the Kangaroos on its Twitter account last night, wishing him luck on his new venture.
It read: “Jarrod Holt had informed the club that he has accepted the Hamilton coaching position for 2014. We wish him all the best!!! #ClubLegend”.
Former North Warrnambool Eagles midfielder Jake Myles was appointed Portland coach in September. Myles signed a two-year deal with the Hanlon Park-based club.
