  ROSS LYON was appointed as the club’s senior coach at the end of the 2011 season.

The father of three had been the senior coach for the past five seasons at St Kilda before his appointment, where in 121 games he took the Saints to four finals’ series and three grand finals in two years (including the 2010 drawn grand final).

At 63 per cent, Lyon has the highest winning percentage of any current AFL coach up to the end of 2011 who has coached for more than one year.

His tenure at St Kilda followed assistant coaching roles at Sydney (2004-2006), Carlton (2000-2003) and Richmond (1996-1999).

As a player, Lyon notched up 127 games with Fitzroy over 10 years before a knee injury ended his career in 1995 after a further two games for Brisbane.

Sydney premiership player BRETT KIRK joined the Fremantle Dockers as an assistant coach at the end of the 2012 season.

Kirk worked with Fremantle senior coach Ross Lyon and stoppages coach Mark Stone when both were at the Swans.

Widely regarded as one of the most courageous and resilient players to have ever pulled on the boots, he played 241 games for Sydney since making his debut in 1999, including the last 200 without missing a match.

Co-captain of the Swans from 2005-2010, Kirk is a highly decorated and respected figure, whose list of achievements include a 2005 AFL Premiership win, All-Australian selection in 2004 and Sydney best and fairest in 2005 and 2007.

In 2011, he spent six months travelling the world and spreading the word about football as the AFL's International Ambassador.

Kirk is responsible for Fremantle's midfield.

MICHAEL PRIOR joined Fremantle at the end of 2007 as the club’s skills coach.

He played a total of 90 AFL games, including 81 with Essendon after being selected number 3 in the 1992 National Draft.

Michael moved to West Coast in 2001 and played nine games in two years before retiring at the end of the 2002 season.

He was East Fremantle assistant coach in 2005 and East Perth Colts coach in 2006 and 2007, winning a premiership in 2006.

He was appointed an assistant coach at Freo at the end of the 2010 season.

PETER SUMICH, a dual premiership player, had been an assistant coach with West Coast for the past 11 seasons before joining Fremantle in 2011.

With more than 20 years as a player and a coach at the elite level, including premiership success, Peter will bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the Fremantle Football Club.

He played 150 games for West Coast from 1989-1997 including the Eagles’ 1992 and 1994 premiership sides and was seven times the club’s leading goal kicker.

Peter also played 112 games for South Fremantle in the WAFL, and was coach of the Bulldogs from 2001-2002.

SIMON LLOYD was appointed as an assistant coach at the club at the end of the 2010 season.

He previously managed the Fremantle Dockers’ Development Academy since 2009 and is still a major contributor in that department.

Simon has a wealth of AFL experience, having worked at Hawthorn and Collingwood in key development, leadership and coaching roles before joining Fremantle.

He was at Collingwood from 2005 to 2008 as high performance manager and club psychologist.

Simon was previously at Hawthorn between 1998 and 2004, filling a number of roles including club psychologist, player development manager, development coach and assistant coach of the club’s VFL side Box Hill.

  MARK STONE was appointed as stoppages coach for the 2012 season.

The father of two has been stoppages coach at the Sydney Swans for the past four seasons.

Prior to that, Mark was stoppage and opposition analyst at West Coast from 2003 to 2007.

He was also an assistant coach at South Fremantle in the WAFL from 2001 to 2002 and senior coach of the Wagga Tigers (1999-2000) in the Riverina Football League.

At the Swans, Mark's responsibilities as stoppages coach included strategic planning and implementation.
