John Worsfold - Senior coach
John Worsfold has enjoyed a long and successful career as both a player and coach. He played 209 games for the West Coast Eagles between 1987 and 1998, captaining the team to two premierships (1992 and 1994). Worsfold became the Eagles' coach in 2002, leading the team to eight finals series including a premiership in 2006. His tenure at West Coast came to an end in 2013. Worsfold took a senior role at the Adelaide Crows in 2015 following the death of coach Phil Walsh. He was announced as Essendon senior coach in October 2015. In his second season (2017), the Bombers rose from the wooden spoon to a finals appearance, while a strong finish to 2018 saw Worsfold re-signed until the end of 2020. 2020 will mark the 51-year-old's fifth and final season at the helm at the Bombers.
