Jamie Vlatko to coach the East Coast Eagles in 2017
The East Coast Eagles have announced their Premier Division coach for the 2017 season is club legend Jamie Vlatko.
Vlatko progresses to the coaching ranks following a stellar career at the Eagles where he joined his brother Jon in 2010 following 85 SANFL games with Norwood. At East Coast he is revered as a Triple Premiership player with 113 senior First Grade games, 332 goals and dual Club Champion Trophies in 2011 and 2012.
When asked about his ambitions and goals for season 2017, Jamie responded with “I’m excited to be part of a great group that is bonding closer and closer together every year. Whilst we will lose players from the Premiership side, we will gain others and I’m really interested in developing and improving players’ on-field performance, which in turn will further build the culture and momentum of the Eagles.”
We look forward to watching the Eagles Premiership defence under their new coach in 2017.
