Mark Williams

Senior coach

Mark joined Werribee as senior coach in September 2018.

A legend of the AFL landscape, Mark is best known as the senior coach of Port Adelaide, the club he led for 274 games from 1999 to 2010 and took to its first and so far only AFL flag in 2004.

He steered the Power into finals in seven of his 12 seasons at the helm, which included a 2007 grand-final appearance and minor premierships in 2002 and 2003 in addition to his 2004 triumph.

After departing Alberton, he spent two years as a senior assistant under Kevin Sheedy – whom he had previously worked with as an assistant at Essendon – before taking on a four-year stint as a development coach under Damien Hardwick at Richmond, where he played a crucial role in mentoring star players such as Dustin Martin and Alex Rance.

Most recently, Mark spent two years as senior coach of Victorian Amateur Football Association side Ajax, part of a broader role as director of coaching and development with Jewish sporting body Maccabi Victoria.

In his first year in charge at Werribee, Mark took the club to a drought-breaking finals campaign. The 'big W' finished the regular season in 5th, won their elimination final, but went onto lose the semi by a kick.
