MELBOURNE has today announced Peter Williams as the newest senior coach to try and turn around the Demons' fortunes after a bottom four finish this year. The Demons finished 14th with five wins from 22 games, and Neale Daniher stepped down a couple of months earlier. In a surprise move, the relatively unknown Williams will step up to the plate and look to build something special for the future.
"I'm happy to be here to see what we can produce, with a mix of youth and experience on the list," Williams said. "We underperformed this season and I will be excited to turn it around, starting with the off-season and then building the club into a contender."
*Note: Hopefully this game does not corrupt itself
The goal will be to try and win premierships, and then potentially move around if need be to gain as much success as possible. I wanted to take a club that had sacked its coach last season.
