North Melbourne is pleased to confirm Adam Marcon has joined the club as a development coach.

Marcon arrives at Arden Street after a stint as an assistant coach in Richmond’s AFLW program this year and two seasons as senior coach at Aberfeldie in the Essendon District Football League premier division.

The decorated former Williamstown captain also spent a season on Richmond’s AFL list in 2016, where he played two senior games and won the club’s VFL best and fairest.

Marcon will work under new North Melbourne head of development Michael Barlow, who was appointed to the role last month.

The club also recently welcomed Xavier Clarke and Jed Adcock as assistant coaches, while former VFL playing assistant coach Jarrod Lienert was promoted to a dual Indigenous player development manager and development coach role.


North Melbourne general manager of football Todd Viney said Marcon would be a great addition to the club’s coaching ranks for 2024.

"We are pleased to welcome Adam to Arden Street," Viney said.

"Adam has settled well into coaching since his retirement from VFL in 2021, most recently as an assistant coach in Richmond’s AFLW program, and he is also a qualified teacher.

"His background in education will be a great asset to us with our young crop of players and incoming draftees."

North Melbourne’s first to fourth year players will officially return to the club for pre-season on Monday, November 13.
