Adam Selwood Biography

Saturday, 5 November 2016
West Coast has finalised its coaching set-up for 2017, refreshing the group as the club prepares for its fourth season under Adam Simpson.

Former Docker Justin Longmuir has been appointed to the senior assistant role, with champion ruckman Dean Cox taking over as joint midfield coach with Adrian Hickmott.

Longmuir is undertaking the AFL's level four coaching course, after being part of the program's second intake at the start of 2016.

Former player Adam Selwood will head up development, Jaymie Graham will become forwards coach and Daniel Pratt will become backline and team defence coach.

Recently retired Eagle Adam Selwood joins the West Coast's coaching panel as a development coach for season 2014.

"I'm pretty excited about the opportunity and after contemplating a number of options, this felt like the best fit and right for my transition into the next phase," Selwood said.

Retiring Eagle Adam Selwood plays through pain in his final AFL game against Adelaide at Patersons Stadium.

"Nothing was going to make me miss this week," Selwood said.

"I was exhausted from being out there. I only played a half but I definitely know the game is too quick for me now.

"It was a pretty emotional time out on the field and then getting in there obviously it was a pretty sombre mood with the performance we had.

"Now it's just a matter of enjoying the career and the opportunity I've had, and I'll catch up with a few of the boys later on and just reflect on what's just happened over the last 11 years."

Injuries have prompted Eagles Adam Selwood and Mark Nicoski to announce their retirements at the age of 29.

"I ended up getting a back injury that's held me back a fair bit this year. And I just couldn't hit the heights I needed to. It affected my form," Selwood said.

"I guess you never really know when the game taps you on the shoulder, and it did that night at AAMI Stadium because I never got where an Eagles jumper ever again," Nicoski said.

It will not be a case of brotherly love when West Coast siblings Adam and Scott Selwood clash with brother Joel in the preliminary final against Geelong.

"I texted him saying we're one day closer to smashing him on Saturday," Eagle Adam Selwood said.

"I haven't received one back yet, so I might keep sending that every day until Saturday."

Cat Joel Selwood, however, says he won't be getting into a slanging match.

"I've spoken to him throughout the week, but he does write a bit of rubbish and talk a bit of rubbish sometimes. I won't get into that," he said.

Tuesday, 4 December 2007
Dean Cox and Tyson Stenglein are named as Eagles vice-captains to recently appointed skipper Darren Glass with Ashley Hansen, Adam Selwood and Matthew Priddis rounding out the West Coast leadership team.

The leadership group was selected based on votes by the Eagles players. Current vice-captain Andrew Embley was elected not to remain in the leadership group.

Eagles coach John Worsfold said that Embley would still provide leadership to the team while not in an official capacity.

"He possesses certain leadership qualities that we may not have included in the ones that we got the players to vote on," Worsfold said of Embley.

"I'll go through with him the areas in the votes where he was lower in our criteria that he could be higher."

Following Selwood's on-field brawl with Docker Des Hedland over Hedland's tattoo of his daughter, Laws was critical of the behaviour of Selwood during the incident.
