Podcast: The career of coaching with Paul Roos
The Big Deal Podcast episode 6
On the back of coaching success stories like Paul Roos, AFL senior coaching jobs are coveted by many. But in reality it is a brutal, high pressure gig.
In recent months we’ve seen Brett Ratten, David Noble and Ben Rutten sacked, and Alistair Clarkson and Chris Fagan pulled up before an AFL inquiry.
When the board or fans demands change, contracts don’t mean much.
So what does it take to lead a high performing team to success, while under the immense scrutiny of the public and media?
To talk about this and much more, Paul Roos joins The Big Deal Podcast. He’s an AFL legend, one of the league’s greatest coaches, a media commentator and founder of leadership consultancy, Performance By Design.

Roos played 356 AFL games, mostly for Fitzroy before finishing his career in Sydney. He was Fitzroy captain for six years, won the best and fairest five times, a seven-time All-Australian, Victorian captain and Australian football hall of famer.
As a coach, he led the Swans to break a 72-year premiership drought in 2005 before setting the leadership foundations at Melbourne that would see them become premiers in 2021.
Through Performance By Design, Roos now brings his incredible insights and experiences to transform culture, leadership and teams in both sport and corporate environments.
In this fascinating interview, Roos talks about:
Keys to coaching success and the realities of coaching careers
Creating a high performance culture
“Make believe”, “zero accountability” and other problems with sports media
AFL in the USA
And much more.
