Dual West Coast premiership on-baller Don Pyke has rejoined the AFL club as an assistant under new coach Adam Simpson.
Pyke, who played 132 games for the Eagles, will specialise in strategy, stoppages and structure under the club’s new-look coaching panel.
The 44-year-old joins former Kangaroos tagger Brady Rawlings and ex-Eagle Jaymie Graham in West Coast’s new-look coaching panel.
Former North Melbourne skipper Simpson was appointed senior coach earlier this month after John Worsfold’s shock resignation.
Pyke has held a number of roles with West Coast since retiring in 1996, spending two seasons as a runner and four years as a director.
In between, he had a coaching stint at WAFL side Claremont.
