Damien Hardwick is safe but his team of support staff at Richmond has reportedly been decimated with five assistants released from the club.

Mark Williams, Ross Smith, Brendon Lade, Mark P Williams and Greg Mellor will not have their contracts renewed at the AFL club, according to Fairfax media.

Hardwick has one year left to run on his contract and his position has been guaranteed for 2017.
