West Coast have appointed former North Melbourne utility Brady Rawlings as an assistant coach.
Rawlings, who retired from the Kangaroos at the end of the 2011 season with 245 games and three best-and-fairest awards, will join his one-time teammate and new Eagles coach Adam Simpson.
“I’ve always thought Adam was a senior coach in the making and I’m looking forward to working under someone I respect so highly," Rawilings said.
“West Coast’s list has an exciting mix of experience and youth and I think we’ll enjoy some great success together."
Since the end of the 2013 season the Eagles have lost head coach John Worsfold, midfield coach Scott Burns and defensive coach David Teague.
“With the appointment of Brady today, our coaching department is beginning to take shape and build direction for 2014 and beyond,” Eagles football operations manager Craig Vozzo said, although he didn't specify Rawlings' role.“We are thrilled to have someone of Brady’s skills join us and we think it’s a really positive appointment for the club."
