Assistant Coach of Western Bulldogs AFLW team
Congratulations and good luck to our senior coach Marc Bullen who has been appointed as Assistant Coach of Western Bulldogs AFLW team.
‘Bully’ will take charge of the Dogs backline and assist senior coach Paul Groves and will play a key role in the development of Western Bulldogs’ talent in the first season of the AFL women’s league.
He is certainly looking forward to the challenge of coaching the team he supports. ‘‘There was a good opportunity to grow my coaching over the course of the next five years and to get myself involved in the AFL and the team I support was great.’’
‘‘My dad was a passionate supporter and flowing through to the time I was at Essendon I jumped ship then, but myself and my kids still follow the dogs.’’
The beginning of the eight week women’s season in February is optimal timing for Bullen, who is planning on leading our mighty club to a fifth straight premiership.
But Bully will no longer be running on to the field as playing coach. ‘‘I pulled up stumps after this year’s premiership because I want to concentrate on coaching and develop that,’’ he said.
‘‘I’ll have a bit more of a reduced role during the (Deer Park) pre-season when I’m with the Bulldogs and let my assistants take control. I’ll head down to training every now and then to make sure they’re still training strongly and keeping up standards,’’ he said.
‘‘It’s great being able to coach and play with these sort of guys and to keep improving each year. I’m certainly looking forward to improving my coaching and transferring the skills from the Dogs to Deer Park.’’
Thrilled with the Western Bulldogs premiership in the AFL, Bullen says hopefully the women’s team can replicate the same success.
‘‘The Doggies won the AFL this year so hopefully we’ll do the same with the women’s next year,’’ he said.
‘‘I’ve got three young daughters so as well as coaching them as they grow, hopefully as they get to the ages of playing they’ll see they have a pathway as well.
‘‘The exhibition game (between the Western Bulldogs and Melbourne) was great, the game will grow and grow.’’
