coach Peter Sumich has decided to end his tenure at the Dockers immediately after it was confirmed over the weekend that he would be leaving the club at the end of the season.
"The decision, which was by mutual agreement between Peter and the club, allows Peter more time to start planning for the next phase of his career," Fremantle general manager of football operations Chris Bond said.
"From the club's perspective it provides us with an earlier opportunity to finalise our coaching structure for 2017.
"Peter brought a wealth of football knowledge and experience with him when he joined Fremantle in 2011 and has made a significant contribution to the progress and development of the club during the past five seasons.
"We wish Peter all the very best in his future endeavours."
