The Adelaide Football Club has appointed Scott Camporeale as interim Senior Coach for the remainder of the season.

The Crows have also hired a Coaching Director with former West Coast premiership mentor John Worsfold taking on a full-time role in 2015. Camporeale, who has been at the Crows since 2011, served as Senior Assistant under Phil Walsh who sadly passed away on Friday.

The Club continues to offer counselling to its players, coaches and staff in the wake of the tragedy.

Crows Chief Executive Officer Andrew Fagan said Camporeale is a respected figure with an astute football brain.

“Nine months ago we set out on a journey with Phil Walsh at the helm,” Fagan said.

“We are all determined to continue pushing down that path, guided by his values of elite standards, hard work, attention to detail and a team-first attitude.

“Scott is well supported by David Teague, Darren Milburn and Matthew Clarke, and now John Worsfold adds further experience and insight.”

There was a need to add to the coaching panel following the shuffle of portfolios with Camporeale stepping up from overseeing the midfield.

Fagan approached Worsfold on Sunday.

“John is a premiership coach who already has an understanding of our football program given he was briefly here on Walshy’s invitation earlier this year,” he said.

“We are thrilled that he has agreed to join our Club for the remainder of this season.”
