Worsfold back in coaching caper

Former West Coast premiership coach John Worsfold has taken over as chairman of the AFL Coaches' Association.

The 45-year-old has been appointed to the role as a replacement for the outgoing David Parkin.

AFLCA interim chief executive Mark Brayshaw said Worsfold was ideally placed to fill the position.

"John's appointment is an important one because there are very few people who have his understanding of the AFL industry, his respect in the caching community and his commercial nous," Brayshaw said.

Worsfold led West Coast to the 2006 premiership and remains the club's longest-serving coach.

He was also the club's captain for the 1992 and 1994 premierships and played 209 AFL matches.

The Eagles legend was unanimously endorsed as the new AFLCA chairman by all 18 clubs after being appointed to the AFL's Laws of the Game Committee earlier this year.
