Shannon Grant Biography

Tuesday, 26 June 2018
Shannon Grant has been jailed for six months for repeatedly assaulting a woman, including stomping on her bare foot after she got out of a bath at a Victorian resort.

Grant immediately launched an appeal after the prison sentence was handed down and will seek release on bail.

The 41-year-old faced Moorabbin Magistrates Court and admitted assaulting the woman at his house in Highett, at a suburban beach and also at a Yarra Valley spa and resort.

At the resort Grant stomped on her bare foot with his heel before knocking her to the ground, causing her to hit her head and elbow on the hard bathroom floor.

"I felt manipulated, betrayed and unable to feel safe," the woman said in her victim impact statement, read by police prosecutor Dale Andrews.

"My left foot took several months to heal ... I was unable to exercise for two months due to the pain."

"We're thrilled to have him as part of the Bulldogs family and look forward to him developing into a really good AFL coach."

Matthew Knights says the ball is in Bendigo Bombers coach Shannon Grant's court after his weekend arrest for public drunkenness.

Grant has been stood down from match-day duties since his arrest.

"If it comes to the crunch and Shannon's ever in that position and he goes to the board and presents, well that's going to be their call," Knights said.

"Time does heal, so Shannon's got to get back and coach well now and work well with our young players and work well at the Bendigo end and just see what goes."

Former North Melbourne premiership player Shannon Grant will guide Essendon's VFL team Bendigo in the 2010 season .

"He has a good football brain, is a hard worker and enjoyed a successful AFL career so we think he is a good fit for Bendigo," Bombers football manager Paul Hamilton said.

"One of the big attractions with Shannon is that he is fresh out of playing AFL football which will help him relate well with the players.

"His role will be to assist with the development of Essendon's younger players and work closely with the Bendigo staff and playing list."

Tuesday, 26 August 2008
Shannon Grant announces that he will retire at the end of the 2008 season just days before his 300th game against Port Adelaide.

"It's been a long journey and a very good one. To be a part of such a great football club for a long period of time, I'm very grateful," Grant said.

"I've always wanted to go out on my own terms. I don't think there's anything worse than going that extra year or two and end up running around in the VFL.

"When you have enough time to think about it, you know when the time's right, you know deep down and I knew that time would come."

Wednesday, 9 July 2008
Shannon Grant is suspended for one match by the Kangaroos for inappropriate behaviour at a sponsor's golf day event.

"The North Melbourne Football Club has suspended Shannon Grant for one match as a result of a breach of the club's player code of conduct," the club said in a statement.

"The club will make no further comment on the issue."

Grant later reveals that his suspension follows a warning issued to him after a previous, and similar, incident that involved alcohol.

"I previously had a warning from an incident that happened last year and as a result of that and being a little bit loud and boisterous at the club supporters' and sponsors' golf day, the club decided that a suspension was to be put in place," Grant said.

"I accepted that and pretty much tried to move on from that. There were no major incidents. There was no major issues that actually happened from the golf day. It was just a matter of having a previous warning and having a little bit too much to drink on the day."

Another Kangaroo, Matt Campbell, was charged with resisting arrest and being drunk in public in an unrelated incident.
