Nicks was announced as Crows coach, replacing Don Pyke who quit last month. We will be a team that not only embraces the contest but seeks it out, Nicks said in a statement yesterday before an afternoon media conference. A team-first mentality also sits at the core of all successful clubs and from this day forward it will always be a clear focus and priority. Nicks was a senior assistant coach at GWS last season, join ing the Giants after filling various assistant coaching roles at Port Adelaide since 2011. Timing is everything and I feel very well prepared, having progressed from being a development coach to a senior assistant at two different clubs in vastly different markets, he said. I am honoured to be given the opportunity to coach at Adelaide and even more excited about what we can achieve together as players, coaches and staff. The Adelaide-born 44year-old takes over with the Crows in a state of flux, miss ing the finals for the past two seasons after losing the 2017 grand final. In addition to Pykes resignation, Taylor Walker has stood down as co-captain and an external review into the club resulted in the sackings of football manager Brett Burton and senior assistant coach Scott Camporeale. Several players are exiting the South Australian club with confirmed moves of Eddie Betts to Carlton and Cam EllisYolmen to Brisbane the first in a string of departures before tonights end to the trade period. New Adelaide Crows head coach Matthew Nicks is excited to take on the challenging job
