Corey joins Dockers
Three time Geelong premiership player Joel Corey is the latest edition to Fremantle's coaching ranks, signing on as a development coach for 2021.
A stalwart of the Cats during their golden era in the late 2000's and early 2010's, Corey played 276 games from 2000-2013, before joining the Western Bulldogs as a development coach.
Corey was the Bulldogs stoppages and set plays coach in their 2016 premiership season and has switched between that role and a midfield coach role at the Bulldogs since then.
The 38 year old returns to his home state, having been recruited from East Perth as a teenager.
Corey said he was looking forward to making the move to Fremantle.
“As a family, we’re really excited about the adventure of moving west,” Corey said.
“Personally, joining Fremantle will give me the opportunity to meet a whole new group of staff and players and I’m looking forward to building some good relationships.
“Speaking to Justin Longmuir, you can tell how genuine he is.”
Corey assumes a role as development coach, the second confirmed coaching addition to Justin Longmuir's staff after ex Bulldogs premiership player and Collingwood assistant Matthew Boyd joined the Dockers as a defensive coach last week.
