Fremantle finalised their 2014 coaching staff this afternoon with the appointment of Claremont coach Marc Webb to a development role.
Webb, 34, will join the Dockers after coaching the Tigers to a premiership and a Foxtel Cup win in his two seasons as head coach.
He also guided WA to a victory over Victoria in Northam this season, snapping a 22-year drought against the Vics.
Webb's coaching accomplishments came after a glittering WAFL playing career which saw him win four premierships with Subiaco, three as captain, and win the Simpson Medal in the 2006 grand final.
His appointment will round out Fremantle's coaching team after Simon Eastaugh was hired as ruck and development coach last month.
Claremont football manager Dean Horsington said the club had already started searching for a new coach, with applications closing next week.
He said Webb’s progression to the elite level was no shock.
“We’ve had a pretty good success rate of getting our coaches to AFL clubs,” Horsington said.
“From the sounds of things, he’ll be well suited at Freo with a very good coach, good structures.“He’s a well-structured coach so he should fit in nicely at Fremantle.”
