Nick Stevens has been named coach of Glenelg
FORMER Carlton and Port Adelaide midfielder Nick Stevens has been appointed coach of SANFL club Glenelg for the next two years.
 
Stevens played 231 games for the Power and then the Blues between 1998 and 2009.
 
The 33-year-old joins the Tigers having taken the Gippsland Power to this season's elimination final in the TAC Cup.
 
Glenelg president Nick Chigwidden told The Advertiser it would be a significant leap for Stevens to coach in the SANFL from the TAC Cup.
 
The added challenge is to turn the Tigers around after they took out the SANFL's wooden spoon in 2013.
 
"The way he presented was exceptional,'' Chigwidden said.

"He was very clear on what his football philosophies are and how he feels he can build a program to make things happen.

"To us he's got really strong people and managerial skills as well as a really strong football background."
