Exclusive: Highly-rated Western Bulldogs assistant to depart after Grand Final



Highly-rated Western Bulldogs senior assistant Steven King will leave the club after the Grand Final.

King has accepted an offer to join the Gold Coast Suns in a similar role after a decade at the Whitten Oval where he has also served as a midfield and defensive coach.

The former Geelong premiership ruckman and All-Australian will replace Josh Francou at the Suns, who have moved to provide coach Stuart Dew with more off-field support.

It comes after the appointment of Wayne Campbell as the new head of football. King’s motivation for relocating to Queensland is primarily family-related, with he and wife Danielle due to have another baby while various family members are already in the state.

King, 42, played 193 games for Geelong before adding another 47 for St Kilda between 1996-2010.
