Adam joins the club as the midfield coach after over a decade of coaching in Brisbane.
He joined the Magpies for a change of scenery and to continue to learn and develop as a coach.
He says the Western Magpies are highly regarded in QAFL circles for both their on field performances but also for their strength and conduct off the field.
Adam's connection with AFL was through his family who had an involvement at Wilston Grange but he started playing as a junior at Aspley. His playing career was cut short by knee and elbow injuries so to keep involved he threw his hand into the coaching ring and he has been at it for over 11 years now.
He commenced coaching with Wilston Grange Thirds in 2007 then moved to Strathpine for two years as Senior coach, coaching the Swans to the premiership in 2008.
It was back to Wilston Grange as Assistant Coach and Reserves Coach in 2010 then he joined Aspley as that club's QFA Senior Coach for four years.
To continue his development he moved to Sandgate as Senior Assistant Coach under Graham "Bomber" Adams in 2015-16 before crossing to Chelmer this year.
He is enjoying his time at the Magpies and he says the Pies playing group is younger than he has coached in recent years and are very receptive to coaching with new ideas and respond well to feedback which he thinks is a great attribute to have.
He says the players are also willing to voice their opinions and he likes the honesty that brings to the group.
Adam loves the vibes at the club under Brydan Morgan and believes the young Pies are on the verge of building their own legacy to add to the Sherwood/Western Magpies wonderful history.
