Former Devils coach and manager Cameron Joyce hopes he's left Tassie's AFL-playing future in a better place.
Joyce coached his final game for Tasmania on Sunday, which yielded an 11.17 (83) to 9.2 (56) win against the Dandenong Stingrays at UTAS Stadium.
In its 2021 campaign, the boys' side moves into the top-six of the competition with six wins and two close losses.
The Devils girls' team finished second on the NAB League ladder, falling short in the elimination finals by one point to the Greater Western Victoria Rebels.
After joining the program in late 2019, Joyce said it was up to others to determine how successful his tenure was.
"I hope so [was successful], that'll be for others to judge I suppose," he said.
"In terms of leaving the place, I'd like to think that over the last 18 months there's been more positive from me being the manager and coach.
"But people will work that out themselves."
As for its future, Joyce said the great seasons from both squads proved the future was bright for young footballers in Tassie.
"There's no question in that," he said.
"They're playing in the best under-age competition in Australia, they're playing against 50 per cent of where the draft pool comes from.
"They're playing against lots of players who'll be playing in the AFL next year and beyond so I can't see too many downsides."
Joyce has signed on as the new coach of the Gold Coast Suns' AFLW team.
While his new boss Tony Cochrane hasn't had the most optimistic take on the Tasmania's AFL future, Joyce said the results of the commission would be the rightful indicator of its viability.
"There's so many good people at the moment who are putting time and energy into the possibility of having a team in Tasmania - I think we've got to trust that," he said.
