Marinkovich appointed Diamonds coach
West Coast Fever coach Stacey Marinkovich will leave her post to fill the national Australian Diamonds Head Coach role.
Marinkovich will continue to lead the West Coast Fever until the end of the 2021 Suncorp Super Netball season before stepping into the national role full-time before the 2022 Commonwealth Games and 2023 Netball World Cup.
The 39-year-old said she felt pride to be appointed to lead the Diamonds.
“This is something I have been working towards my entire professional life and I’m absolutely honoured and humbled that Netball Australia have granted me the opportunity to lead the world’s best netball team,”
“I am acutely aware of the expectations, the history and responsibility of taking on such a position and I am very much looking forward to growing the success of the Origin Diamonds program.
“Coaching the Origin Diamonds is not about me as a coach. It is about the team that is representing the nation and Netball Australia, and everything I will do in my time as Head Coach is about the quality of that representation.
