Former Hawthorn football operations manager Chris Fagan is the new coach of the Brisabne Lions.
He will replace Justin Leppitsch after he was sacked at the end of this season. He was coach for 3 years but only managed 14 wins in 66 games.
Fagan said at his press conference that he looking foward to the challenge.
“I think Brisbane has got a talented young list and their best football is ahead of them. I think they really need a coach who can develop that talent and I feel like that is one of my great strengths.” Fagan said.
“I’m very much looking forward to taking up that opportunity in the weeks and months ahead.”
Fagan beat the likes of Carlton assistant John Barker and former Western Bulldogs assistant Brett Montgomery for the job.
One of his first order of business will be to look at his list and see which players he need to keep or trade.
He also needs to decide whether to keep senior players Tom Rockliff and Pearce Hanley at the club.
