Brad Green has today been confirmed as North Melbourne’s newest assistant coach.

Green will take responsibility for the Roos’ defensive group, heading to Arden St after three years with Carlton and a distinguished playing career with the Demons.

Green played in 254 games for Melbourne, as well as making six appearances in Australian colours between 2004 and 2011, before making the move to coaching, joining Mick Malthouse at the Blues at the end of the 2012 season.

The 34-year-old said he was excited to be joining the Roos.

“I’m really looking forward to the change,” Green said.

“Coming to a club with such a strong history - and a club that’s played in the last two preliminary finals - I’m really looking forward to the challenge, and it’s an exciting challenge.

“Looking from afar I’ve really enjoyed the way North play the game and certainly hope we can go one step further and, like everyone else around the club, play on that last day in September.”

North Director of Football Geoff Walsh said he was delighted to have Green on board.

“Brad certainly impressed us during the interview process, has solid credentials and will certainly bring plenty of experience and knowledge to North Melbourne,” Walsh said.

“We’re looking forward to welcoming him on board in November as we prepare for an important 2016 season for the club.”

With Green’s appointment, North Melbourne is also able to confirm the following changes in its coaching ranks.

Darren Crocker has been promoted to Director of Coaching, while Leigh Tudor will look after the forward line, Josh Drummond the midfield and Jarred Moore, previously a development coach at Arden St, to join the assistant ranks, looking after stoppages and the midfield group.
