Adelaide welcome back star

Former Crow Returns As Assistant

Former Adelaide star Brent Reilly has returned to the club as an assistant coach for the 2018 season.

Reilly retired in 2015 due to a fractured skull after 203 games in 13 seasons with the Crows.

The 34-year-old will focus on development and replaces Nathan van Berlo on Adelaide’s coaching panel after the former captain joined West Coast this post-season. 

The appointment of Reilly finalises Adelaide’s coaching structure which also features Don Pyke (senior coach), Ben Hart (defence), Josh Francou (forwards), Ryan O’Keefe (forwards development/SANFL coach), Paul Thomas (midfield development), Scott Camporeale (midfield), Matthew Clarke (ruck), Tate Kaesler (team defence) and Heath Younie (development manager).
