Shane O'Bree Biography

Saturday, 6 October 2012
Geelong's coaching panel continues to be bolstered by former Lions players, with the club announcing Shane O'Bree will become an assistant.

"I have a lot of respect for the club and I will be looking to help the club continue with the success it has enjoyed over the years," O'Bree said.

"Working with Gold Coast the past two years has been enjoyable but I am happy to be back home and working with the Cats."

Sunday, 21 November 2010
Gold Coast midfield coach Shane O'Bree says he will borrow from Collingwood's premiership-winning game plan at the Suns.

"Collingwood have a winning formula, and I will take away a lot from Mick Malthouse, but I will also put my own spin on it too," O'Bree said.

"There are definitely areas I can take away from at Collingwood."

Monday, 13 September 2010
Former Collingwood midfielder Shane O'Bree will join the Suns as an assistant to senior coach Guy McKenna after announcing his retirement.

Collingwood midfielder Shane O'Bree is dropped from the side to face Hawthorn in round 4 and Magpies coach Mick Malthouse says it was a hard decision to make.

"Professionally, you have got a decision to make and emotionally (you're) very attached to Shane and that's probably the most difficult thing I have had to do all week - and probably the last year and a half, two years," Malthouse said.

"He arrived the same time as I did. We've got one goal to see success at the footy club and the goal now is to ensure he gets back into the side playing the way we want him to play."

Sunday, 17 January 2010
Collingwood midfielder Shane O'Bree says he can't wait to see former skipper Nathan Buckley grow as an assistant coach.

"He is adjusting very well. Initially it was going to be different because he has played with the majority of the team," O'Bree said.

"With the way he speaks and how clear he is when explaining a drill, I can't wait until game day to see how he performs then and I'm sure he will be really good."

"Then people tell you when you play your first game to make the most of it as it goes quick, and it does go quick.

"It's a great achievement and I've been lucky enough for Collingwood to give me the opportunity and hopefully we can get a win."
