The AFL Cairns competition will be poorer for not having Marc Harbrow as a senior coach in 2020 and beyond.
He has stepped down from the job following the current season.
Just as Peter German is beginning at North Cairns and Aaron Davey is working on at Cairns City Lions, Harbrow led an almighty rebuilding job at the Manunda Hawks over the last half decade.
He took on the top job after the Cazalys-based club was sensationally booted from the seniors and reserves competitions in 2015 in a landmark decision after they opted to forfeit games in Port Douglas, citing concerns for player safety.
Hawks junior and premiership player, Harbrow, was respected by his playing group, and other coaches and club officials valued his input and thoughts on the competition and the wider game.
He will not be lost to the sport of Australian rules and will no doubt continue to build a lasting legacy in the Far North.
