Jarrad Wright extends until 2022

South Adelaide is pleased to reveal that senior coach Jarrad Wright has inked a new deal until the end of 2022.

Since taking on the role of senior coach at the end of 2017, Wright has guided the Panthers to two finals appearances in 2018 and 2020, including a Preliminary Final. 

South Adelaide Chief Executive Officer, Neill Sharpe said the Club was confident of the direction it was heading under Wright's leadership.

"We're really pleased to be able to extend Jarrad's time at the club and are excited with the direction going forward" said Sharpe.

"The way Jarrad has been able to develop the football program and the culture of the group over the last three years has been outstanding" 

Senior Coach Jarrad Wright said that he is very excited for what is ahead with this playing group. 

"I'm really excited to continue on at South Adelaide, it is a terrific club and I am proud to be able to lead them for a further 2 years." said Wright

"Obviously the result on the weekend is still very raw and will be for some time, but I believe that we are tracking on the right path."

"We have some exciting talent being produced through our pathway and with further improvements & hard work over the pre-season I'm confident we can go a step or two further"

Prior to being appointed as senior coach at South Adelaide, Wright underwent an extensive coaching apprenticeship that included stints as an assistant coach at both Woodville-West Torrens and South Adelaide, guiding the Eagles Reserves to back-to-back premierships and taking control of his own program at Henley Sharks and leading them to a premiership in the Adelaide Footy League.

In 2019 Wright was selected as a assistant for the West End State team that took on WA in Perth. 

Also a talented player, Wright was drafted by the Brisbane Lions with pick 35 of the 2001 AFL National Draft, after leading South Australia's Under-18s, and spent two years on their list through their premiership successes of the early 2000s under the tutelage of the great Leigh Matthews.

Wright's playing career also included over 100 Senior State League games with South Adelaide, Woodville-West Torrens (SANFL) and the Brisbane Lions (QAFL) and an Under-17s premiership with the Eagles.
