Essendon have confirmed club legend Mark Harvey will “transition out of coaching”, as the club prepares for its first season under sole senior coach Ben Rutten.

Harvey, a three-time premiership player and former senior coach of Fremantle, has been replaced by fellow assistant coach James Kelly effective immediately.
