Geelong coach Chris Scott says the death of club legend Bob Davis has hit the players hard and they'll carry the memory of him into coming AFL matches.

Davis, a Cats premiership player and coach, who went on to have a long media career, died on Monday night aged 82.

"It's a horribly difficult situation for everyone at the club, Bob Davis was a legend of the club and it's all the more disappointing for me that I never got the chance to spend much time with him," Scott told reporters.

"Everyone speaks very highly of not only his involvement and contribution to the club as a player and coach, but the time he spent at the club when his official duties had ended. It's just a really sad day."

Scott said Davis had become a good friend to many of the current players.

"It actually hit the players really hard. Bob spent a lot of time at the club I'm led to believe and got to know the players quite well on a personal level," he said.

"I'm loath to say it will change the way the players play this week, but it will be in all Geelong people's minds for this week and weeks to come."

Scott said the name Bob Davis, had become synonymous with the Geelong Football Club.
