Clarkson assistant coaches record

Recommended Posts

Can’t argue with these facts... 

I wish Goodwin nothing but success but just wonder what the thought process was when Roos was looking for a successor???

Every chance that Sam Mitchell and Hodge can be added to that list in a few years.  Awesome record.

Re Roos thought processes.  I've often wondered how we ended up with Goodwin who had minimal coaching experience.  In fact just a few years at a dodgy club in turmoil.  

Goodwin was appointed about a year after Roos.  I doubt Roos spent that year idly waiting for him to walk in the front door.  There were occasional rumours of potential coaches but we will never know how many we approached who didn't make the grade or who knocked us back.  So, was it a Bradbury appointment? 

I still think Goodwin can be a good coach.  Was he the best around at the time?  Maybe, just the best we could get.

 

Just noticed another similar thread.   @Demonland  maybe this thread should be merged with

erm , these are just little factoids that at some stage will be broken, either Goodwin, perhaps Hinkley, perhaps Rutten, perhaps Teague... it'll happen.

Mind, not a bad legacy at all.

We wanted Dew. He would have effectively been a Clarko apprentice due to playing in 2008.

I’m sure it wasn’t simply “who has been an assistant under Clarkson”

Many of the great coaches had many players and assistants who went on to be great coaches themselves... or they became known as great coaches as a result of the success that came from being surrounded by so many players and assistants who were capable of being great coaches in their own right.

I’d be inclined to think that Clarkson has had a fair hand in the success that has followed him, but I wouldn’t discount the ability of someone simply because they didn’t complete a tutelage under him.

Not bad?

Wow you're a hard marker. Clarko will go down as the best coach from the last 50 years. And his apprentices will likely have strong success as well.

FFS @jnrmac - I'm not typically in to your histrionics when you post, and your comment on the language I used in my post has raised my ire.  I use understated language out of respect  and of acknowledgement of the legacy of Clarkson, that might not be your cup of tea, but get your hand off it.

Agreed.  There was a time when Malthouse underlings were viewed as the next big thing.

Was it that Dew was sought out because he was a Paul Roos protégé?

 

So begs the question who of note was it that tutored Clarko to be the undisputed champion coach of the AFL?  He had a fairly short coaching apprenticeship by modern standards. 

 

Not disputing that the guy has an enviable record or that some of his assistants have done ok as well, but personally I think some of this Clarko midas touch on assistant coaches is a bit overrated at times.

What about Chris Fagan? Not a premiership coach yet but has lifted a team dead in the water to a genuine threat in the near future in only his third season.

Now this is interesting. Fagan was widely credited with being a crucial part of the HFC brains trust and a steadying influence on Clarko who could "talk him down" when in a rage, and counter his crazier ideas.

When Fagan left, HFC insiders worried that Clarko had lost his minder and would be unchecked.

Now Fagan is having a great effect on BFC.

We may never know, but I wonder how much of the "Clarko effect" could fairly be called the "Fagan effect"?

Looking at it from another direction, top quality assistants are looking to work with Clarkson base don his reputation.  Therefore those applying or willing to work with him will be the pick of the bunch.

The thing I heard about Clarko before he became a senior coach was his determination.  AFL was holdings it first lv 3 coaching event, Clarko was not invited but turn up and join in.  He is a coach who knows what he needs to be successful and he is audacious enough to get it.  Hence his success.

Does that drive and his ability to delegate and build his assistants produce high quality coaches, maybe yes.  But success as a coach is traditionally seen as  80% players 20% coach/game plan.

With Malthouse it was a baseless 'herd mentality' in advance of any of his proteges achieving anything.  Few ever would and are no longer senior coaches:  Neeld, Sanderson, B. Scott.  Buckley may be the exception.

Some clubs were silly enough to take the hype and Malthouse's unabashed promotion of those proteges, seriously.

With Clarkson the plaudits are coming after his proteges have the runs are on the board.  Some will fail eg Bolton but he has a very good batting average. 

Chalk and cheese situations.

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2019

    PART ONE - OVERTURE  I have a disclaimer at the outset. I’m not a fan of the races - be they horses or motors of any kind. Once the final siren sounds on the football season, I find the month or so that follows and corresponds roughly with the Spring Racing Carnival to be the most boring time of the year for sports fans. You turn on the radio and you’re confronted by the monotonous drone of a self-proclaimed racing expert or by the nasally twang of an ex-jockey banging on about the equine p

    CHANGES 2019 by The Oracle

    PART 1 - IT’S A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED THIS TIME This year’s free agency, trade and draft period will see the usual drama and upheaval as the AFL’s 18 clubs seek to better their lists in order to challenge for finals and possibly premiership honours. Long before the final siren sounded on the season just over a week ago, the maneuvering was under way with player agents and clubs discussing possible player movements and in some cases, deals had already been done.  Yesterday, the r

    HOW FAR SOUTH? by George on the Outer

    It was appropriate that Melbourne was playing its last game of season 2019 in Hobart.  After all, how much further south could the team go? And much as it has done in many of the previous 22 games, the side managed to extract a loss from a winning position by simply giving the ball back to the opposition time and time again. In fact, they gave it back to the opposition to the tune of 53 points from turnovers while, by way of contrast North Melbourne contributed  only 17 points to their oppo

    COOKED by The Oracle

    I can vividly remember when the Demons ventured onto Blundstone Arena for the first time in early 2016 only to lose to the Kangaroos by 20.11.131 to 21.10.136.    Melbourne was then a team on the up and up: young, enthusiastic and bold. It gave up a huge quarter time deficit after kicking against a strong wind but made that up by half time and fell dramatically short after an exciting high scoring affair.  The team lost no fans that day - they were willing to take the game on and attac

    HELP by KC rom Casey

    The Casey Demons finished off their home and away season against Frankston at Skybus Stadium on Sunday with a narrow, unconvincing 6-point victory that left the door slightly open for a top eight berth when the VFL finals begin in a fortnight’s time. While sunny skies prevailed over Frankston in the morning, the skies became overcast by noon and heavy waves pounded the bay nearby as the rains came in to greet the players as the game started. And conditions stayed dark and dreary for the rem

    THANKS BUT NO THANKS by George on the Outer

    Thanks, but no thanks! In a round where the club was supposed to thank their fans for the support during the year, the Melbourne Football Club chose to do otherwise with a 53 point loss to a team that sat 15th on the ladder.  Don’t give us cheap jumpers that can’t be sold in the Demon shop.  Don’t give us vouchers to shop there, give us something on the field, which is why we come to the football in the first place. It was a disgraceful performance, which started with a disgracefu

    SLEEP OUT AT THE MCG by The Oracle

    Around about 12 months ago Melbourne and Sydney fought out an epic battle between two top eight teams fighting for the best possible ladder position in the lead up to the finals. The Swans triumphed by 9 points at the MCG after the Demons came back from five goals down at three quarter time. But for its poor kicking for goal, Melbourne might well have won the game and finished in the top four. Who knows what might then have happened for the club in September? As a consequence, the person re

    A LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by KC from Casey

    Two clubs that have been hard hit by injury recently took part in a dour battle under dark clouds and, with intermittent showers falling, it wasn’t a pretty game at Victoria Park on Sunday. Despite all that, the Casey Demons added a little ray of sunshine to their day to get the job done over a "traditional" rival with a 15 point victory over Collingwood VFL that breathed life back into their season. There were a few highlights at the ground that in past days has seen many titanic batt

    THE RETRO ROUND by George on the Outer

    We have seen it all before… Yes, a wonderful idea to showcase what used to be in football.  Big crowds, umpires who knew how to apply the rules and not opinions, high marks, skilful players. But for the Melbourne supporters their retro is what it has been like for the past 10 years. Losing games, end on end, year after year.  Opportunities squandered in front of goal. VFL standard players running around at the MCG. Just more of the same, and the game against Collingwood was no ex

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    Thanks to Demonlanders for their input into this week’s preview. Ralphius Maximus is short and bittersweet: We'll crack in at the bounce to create a contest, win our share of the ball, butcher the forward movement and get scored on easily from the intercepts. Not that hard to predict. Big Demon says: Unfortunately Collingwood will win because they have a lot more to play for. We will be good in parts but really the season is well over so we will have to put up with those bell

    WHAT, NO BLOOD? by George on the Outer

    The feeling when turning up to the MCG on a Saturday night to play a top four side in Richmond, while the Melbourne sits cemented in close proximity to the bottom of the table is like attending the Colosseum in Ancient Roman times. The expectation is that a bloodbath is about to occur. There are 100,000 Richmond members and 50,000 Melbourne members, and despite the fact that it turned out to be a wet night after half-time, a crowd of only 37K bothered to turn up. That should never have happ

    A MAN’S ERRAND by KC from Casey

    A young and undermanned Casey Demons were sent out on Saturday to the Swinburne Centre in the shadows of the MCG on a man’s errand against a very experienced Richmond VFL combination which is the clear ladder leader and fielded no less than 18 AFL listed players. It was expected to be a rout and the Tigers made easy work of it in the early stages when they held a 26 point lead by quarter time. To their credit however, the Demons weathered the storm and kept their opponents within the range
