Corey Enright will stay on with Geelong in a new role, the club confirmed today.

Enright will take on the role of development and transition coach, working with the club's younger brigade.

The 35-year-old had a sense of humour about his brief departure from Kardinia Park.

"It looks like this was a short lived farewell," Enright laughed.

"The club always showed great faith in me and they have again in giving me an opportunity to take on a new career path. I have great respect for the coaches at the club and look forward to learning more in this role. It is an exciting time with so many players coming through the system, and to work with the players to help them improve will be a challenge I am looking forward to."

The Geelong champion retired from the game this season after a record-breaking 332 games with the Cats.
