Jeromey Webberley is the new Talent Manager and Head Coach of the Tasmania Devils.
A Tasmanian native, Webberley enters the role with a deep knowledge of the local landscape and the pathway from community football right through to the AFL.
Webberley has experience at all levels within Tasmania, starting out at Brighton Junior Football Club before joining Tasmanian State League (TSL) club Clarence to be drafted into the AFL in 2009 by the Richmond Football Club.
Following a 16-game AFL career, Webberley returned to Tasmania and Clarence, coaching the club in the TSL for the past five seasons. In this time, the 33-year-old has overseen a regeneration of the club’s list and lead the development pathway within the club.
Webberley will coach the Tasmania Devils in the NAB League Boys and NAB League Girls from season 2022. He will also work closely with Regional Talent Leads Jamie Hayward (North West), Mathew Armstrong (South) and Nathan Warren (North) to manage the overall talent program across Tasmania.
Head of AFL Tasmania Damian Gill welcomed Webberley to the role.
“It is exciting to welcome Jeromey to our team and into an important role for Tasmanian football.
“Our Tasmanian boys and girls deserve a quality coach and leader to continue the great work of Cameron Joyce and I am confident our program is in good hands with Jeromey.
“He is a terrific local football character – he understands and deeply cares for Tassie footy, he is a skilled coach, and he is a relationship builder.
“It is great to have a Tasmanian that lives and breathes Tassie footy in the role but more importantly it is great to have a quality person and coach in the role.
“I would also like to acknowledge and thank Nicole Bresnehan and Mathew Armstrong for stepping up to take on the Tasmania Devils operations and coaching duties for the second half of the 2021 season.”
Webberley will commence in the role from 11 October 2021.
