Jock McHale

This is a list of captains and coaches of Australian Football League premiership teams. Jock McHale has coached the most premierships with eight. Syd Coventry, Dick Reynolds and Michael Tuck are the most successful captains with four premierships each.

The coach of the premiership winning team currently receives the Jock McHale Medal, named in McHale's honour. The medal was first awarded in 2001, and Jock McHale Medals were retrospectively awarded to all premiership winning coaches starting from 1950, which was the first season following McHale's retirement from coaching.

Footnotes[edit]

  • 1:^ Jock McHale had coached the Collingwood throughout that year and into the week of the grand final, but was absent on the day of the grand final, having fallen ill with influenza. Club treasurer Bob Rush performed the match day coaching duties in his place. For many years, Rush was credited with having coached the game, but after a decision in 2014 by the AFL's historians, McHale was credited as Collingwood's sole coach in the game for the purposes of coaching statistics.[1]
