The faith Worsfold has shown in his players during a long youth-driven rebuild was justified emphatically in 2011, with the team playing off in a preliminary final one year after collecting the wooden spoon.
It was a remarkable turnaround and Worsfold's role was acknowledged when he was named the AFL Coaches' Association Allan Jeans Senior Coach of the Year.
It was the second time Worsfold had won the award, which was re-named in 2011 to honour the passing of the legendary St Kilda and Hawthorn premiership coach.
Worsfold proved in 2011 that he is a flexible coach, embracing the modern defensive press and enusring his team implemented it as well as anyone.
In returning the club to the top four, Worsfold earned a two-year contract extension and this season he will surpass Mick Malthouse as West Coast's longest-serving coach.
The dual premiership captain was also acknowledged last August when he was among eight inaugural inductees to West Coast's Hall of Fame.
