GEELONG coach Chris Scott has been confirmed as Alastair Clarkson's second assistant for the International Rules series in November.

Scott, who led the Cats to the 2011 premiership, joins Fremantle coach Ross Lyon as the two assistants to Clarkson. 

"Chris has done a superb job since taking over as the coach of the Geelong Cats, progressing deep into the finals every season since 2011 while introducing a new breed of young players to keep the club at the top of the ladder," AFL general manager of football operations Mark Evans said.
"A coaching panel of Alastair, Ross and Chris brings together some of our leading coaching minds and we are delighted that each has committed to be part of this year's series."
