Chris Scott has established himself among the elite coaches of the AFL. He has guided the Cats to a 97-33 record (74.43%) over his first six seasons at the helm, while overseeing the transition of the team to incorporate an array of young players.

Scott secured his spot in Geelong history by guiding the Cats to the premiership in his first season as coach. Scott took over a team that most experts felt was past its best.

Scott led Geelong to 13 wins to start the season, establishing a league record for most consecutive wins by a first year coach at the start of his career.

Geelong finished the home & away season with a 19-3 record, then posted emphatic wins over Hawthorn, West Coast and Collingwood to capture the premiership.

Scott was able to blend both the experienced and younger players into a potent line up. He was also honoured as All Australian coach after becoming just the 13th first year coach to lead his club to the flag.

The Cats followed up in 2012 with 15 wins while introducing 10 debutants, as the club looked to blend future and current success.

The 2013 season saw the Cats finish second after the home & away season with an 18-4 record, before falling by five points in the preliminary final.

In 2014 Geelong was again at the fore front of the competition. The Cats finished third at the end of the home-and-away season with a 17-5 mark before falling at the semi final stage. 

Scott was appointed as Geelong’s senior coach on 15 October 2010 after three seasons as an assistant coach at Fremantle. He helped the Dockers emerge from a lean history to be one of the hottest young teams on the rise in the AFL.


Scott marked himself as one of Brisbane’s greats during the golden era of the Lions, playing 215 games with the pioneering Lions.

Scott was a member of two premiership teams, 2001 and 2002, and he was denied a third flag by injury in 2003. He also played in the Lions 2004 grand final.

He claimed the Lions best & fairest in 1998 and was the AFL's rising star in 1994, his first season at the top level.

Scott established himself immediately in 1994, playing 19 games. He was an automatic selection for the Lions during their nine finals campaigns in the 1990s and early 2000s.
Scott retired following the 2007 season, his last game coming against the Cats at the Gabba.

Scott kicked 79 goals in his 215 game career.
