To be honest if we had a half decent squad to work with I would have loved to see Dean Cox get his chance but I feel given the current circumstances that whoever takes the job on now is simply rebuilding the team for the coach after that to return the club to flag contention. Therefore, IMO, Cox would be wasting his best shot at being a successful senior coach.

Campbell Brown firmly believes that Dean Cox will be the next coach of West Coast.

It comes after the the Eagles announced that they had parted ways with premiership coach Adam Simpson after 11 years.

Hawthorn premiership player Brown is confident that former star Eagles ruckman Cox will replace Simpson at the helm in 2025.

“I’ll give you some breaking news,” Brown begun on SENTrack.

“You can take this as absolute gospel. Now he won’t be replacing him right now because he’s not at the club as he’s currently up in Sydney.

“Dean Cox will be the coach of the West Coast Eagles next year.”

Cox is currently John Longmire’s assistant at the Sydney Swans where he has been since the end of the 2017 season.

The 2006 premiership ruckman played 290 games for the Eagles, was an All-Australian on six occasions and won a best and fairest.

In 2023, Cox reportedly ruled himself out of the Eagles job when he was previously linked to Simpson’s position.

Don Pyke, the current West Coast CEO, worked alongside Cox at the Swans before taking the job.

Hope Brown is on the money but not sure how reliable he is ... :LOL::unsure:
