Jed Donoghue is the new coach of Victory League club Tilford Zebras.
Donoghue had been assistant coach and technical director at Victory League champions South Hobart.
He has a C Licence as a coach and this will be his first position as a senior coach in the top flight.
He follows Tommy Fotak in the position after GFotak resigned at the end of the 2013 Victory League campaign, having taken the side into third place.
Fotak took over from Stephen Pitchford, who was dismissed after four rounds of the Victory League.
Pitchford was named last week as the new coach of Victory League club Kingborough Lions United.
Peter Savill, who coached Northern Rangers in the Victory League in 2013, will assist Ken Morton at South Hobart in 2014.
Meanwhile, Tasmanian youngster Jesse Curran was on the bench this afternoon for the Central Coast Mariners in their A-League match against Adelaide United at Bluetongue Stadium in Gosford.
The Mariners won 1-0, but Curran did not get a run.
He is a member of the Mariners’ youth squad.
Tasmania’s Jeremy Walker has been unable to break into Melbourne Heart’s senior A-League side this season.
He has been training well, but the form of Jason Hoffman has been impressive and he has kept Walker out of the side.
Tasmanian Will Abbott has not had his youth contract renewed by Melbourne Heart for this season.
