David Teague Biography

Monday, 20 September 2021
After being relieved of his duties as head coach of Carlton, David Teague joins Richmond as an assistant coach.

"Coaching is my passion and I am excited by the opportunity to get to work with a new group of players and at a new club," Teague said.

"I am looking forward to getting to work this pre-season and embracing the challenge that we all have, to climb the Tigers back up the ladder in 2022."

Thursday, 26 August 2021
David Teague's time at Carlton as head coach comes to an end after a drawn-out review process.

"It was identified that there had been confusion associated with the gameplan at times and on-field, the team has underdelivered in its ability to consistently defend, win the contest and apply pressure," club president Luke Sayers said in an email to members.

"While the easier option would have been to wait a further 12 months in the hope these deficiencies would change, the in-depth data gained over a significant period of time as part of this review process left no doubt that such an option would not be in the best interests of the club. As such, it would have been irresponsible to ignore the decisions that had to be made."

Saturday, 21 August 2021
David Teague's manager Liam Pickering concedes his client could soon lose his job as Carlton coach.

"I spoke to them (Carlton) this week (on Teague's future) and they didn't have an answer. They said we have to wait for a review. The silence is deafening though isn't it?" Pickering said.

Pickering also took aim at former St Kilda and Fremantle coach Ross Lyon who made it known via an interview that he would be keen to explore coaching the Blues after opting not to pursue the vacant position at Collingwood.

"He was talking very smugly the other night. He went on a five-minute rant about why he'd be a great man for the job, his coaching record, Grand Finals at two clubs," Pickering said.

"I get more angry at this stuff than (Teague), I don't think you treat people the way he's been treated this year. It's poor. Then you've got ex-coaches jumping on his grave as well."

Carlton coach David Teague prepared says he is prepared to leave his young family and enter quarantine a hub in order to rebuild the game amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

It comes after some players threatened to stand down if they were required to commit to the worst-case scenario of 20 weeks in isolation between the season restart and the Grand Final.

"I've had a discussion with my wife and she was incredibly supportive. She said in my role and for the game now, to play my part for the game and to be a custodian of the game. I feel like we're part of this bigger picture," Teague said.

"Will I miss my kids? Absolutely. But right now, the game has given me a lot and it's my chance to give it something back."

Thursday, 15 August 2019
David Teague will be head coach of Carlton until the end of 2022 after signing a three-year deal with the club.

"Over the next few years, we're really going to improve," Teague said.

"That's my job now, I've got to help them do that. But I think we're going to be a very competitive football club from this Saturday onwards.

"I think there's going to be improvement. How quick and how that happens, we'll find out over time. But I believe in this playing group and I believe in the direction of the club."

Friday, 12 July 2019
Carlton caretaker David Teague says he didn't need to clear the air with Chris Judd after the Blues' football director appeared to rule him out of contention for the vacant senior coaching role.

Teague has impressed since taking over from Brendon Bolton last month, but his hopes of assuming the job permanently appeared to be dashed when Judd pointedly declared the Blues "don't want someone with training wheels on."

"We want an experienced coach that can take us to the next step," Judd told the Nine Network.

"(Teague) is getting some really good coaching experience now ... he's in effect coached his own team, but that's not really the same as being an actual senior coach of a football team with the pressure that comes with that."

But Teague said he had no issue with Judd's comments.

"I speak to Chris regularly and I'm very comfortable with where the club's at. I think we've got the right people in place to make that call, and I've got no issue at all there," Teague said.

"He did mention that there was some conversation around what he said on the Monday night, but he didn't really need to clear it up with me."

Sunday, 30 June 2019
Carlton interim coach David Teague says he is enjoying being in charge after leading the Blues to victories in two of their last three matches, with their most recent effort an exciting four-point come-from-behind triumph over Fremantle in Perth.

But the confident 38-year-old says any thoughts he has had of taking on the coaching job are not at the forefront of his mind.

"I have got a job to do and I am there to get my job done as the players are," Teague said.

"Right now, I am having a ball. I am absolutely loving it and I am going to enjoy every minute of it. Where it ends up it ends up. Right now, I am having fun."
