Former Saint Mary's Coach Rick Nolan says the NTFL needs a development program for prospective coaches.

Nolan announced his resignation from the club last month, leaving the club without an immediate Premier League Coach.

While Nolan says he plans to return to coaching, he also believes the NTFL needs to provide more programs as a pathway into coaching.

Former Saint Mary's great Jared Ilett has ruled out taking over the position.

Club President Steve Ludwig says the club has received a consistent amount of applications for the role.
