The West Coast Eagles have completed their off-field structure with long-term staff members Gavin Bell and Ben Sharman elevated to newly-created positions.

Bell takes on the role of football manager and Sharman is the football operations manager. Also under a revised structure strength and conditioning manager Warren Kofoed will head up fitness and medical.

Former General Manager – Football, Craig Vozzo will transition into the Executive Department as the Club’s Senior Corporate Counsel.

“After analysing the club’s performance across all departments in 2021, we have moved to make some changes we see as beneficial to the club’s overall operations,” Chief Executive Trevor Nisbett said today.

“Under this structure we have rewarded a number of very accomplished staff members with greater responsibility. At the same time we have elevated Craig Vozzo into the executive department of the club, where his legal and commercial skillset will be highly beneficial in dealing with the club’s legal and strategic needs.

“Combined with the arrival of experienced coaches Matthew Knights and Jarrad Schofield, along with the return of Daniel Pratt, we have also added Jacob Brennan to our development program and Robert Wiley as the senior coach of our WAFL Eagles.  

“The football department is in good shape as we begin preparations for the 2022 season. There is a high level of energy and excitement among the players who have been training over the last couple of weeks.”
