Jed Adcock will make his Brisbane Lions homecoming.  

The former captain will return to the Club in a coaching capacity with his role to be finalised in the coming month.  

Adcock, who played 206 games for the Lions, said he felt he still had a lot to offer to the Lions’ young list.  

The 30-year-old finished his career with the Western Bulldogs this season as a member of their VFL Premiership team.  

“I’m really, really excited to be back,” said Adcock.  

“I think the year away has done a lot of good for me – I probably learnt a lot about myself and a lot about footy and probably where the game is at now and what it takes to really get there and play in a premiership side. Even though I didn’t play in the game it was still great to be part of the club.  

“Hopefully I can pass on some of that knowledge and the learnings from that to support the Club.”  

Adcock met with Senior Coach Chris Fagan in Melbourne to discuss the role and what he can offer to the Club.  

“We’re really pleased to welcome Jed back to the Lions,” said Fagan.  

“As a former Club captain, he knows what it takes to mentor a group of young guys. After a year away at the Western Bulldogs, and with a VFL Premiership under his belt, Jed will only bolster our coaching group.”  

Adcock, who is completing a coaching course in America, will begin his role in November.
