Peter Sumich has reportedly pulled out of the running for the Western Bulldogs senior coaching role.
Fremantle assistant coach Peter Sumich has reportedly pulled out of the race to be the Western Bulldogs senior coach.
Radio 6PR’s Kim Hagdorn told Mornings with Gary Adshead that Sumich had withdrawn due to family reasons.
“Peter Sumich has withdrawn from the race to get the Western Bulldogs job,” Hagdorn said.
“He’s been so determined to become a senior coach and yet he’s withdrawn.
“The [Sumich] family decided if you get it [the Bulldogs job] – which they all wanted him to do – the family was going to stay in Perth.
“I don’t think that suited Peter. I don’t think he wanted to go through it and so he remains committed to Fremantle.”
The former West Coast full-forward marginally lost out to Adam Simpson in the race for the Eagles top job last season.
