Danny Frawley has stepped down as chief executive of the AFL Coaches’ Association (AFLCA), saying he was unable to commit to the growing demands of the job.

The former St Kilda captain and Richmond coach said he was proud of the AFLCA’s achievements under his leadership “in particular the establishment of the many programs designed to assist with the professional development of coaches and career transition within and outside the game”.

Former West Coast premiership coach John Worsfold has helped conduct an ongoing review of the AFLCA.

“It is likely that the demands of the CEO role will broaden and that expectations of the role will grow, and I don’t feel that I will be in a position to dedicate more time to the role given my other commitments and, in particular, my media responsibilities,” said Frawley.
