Former St Kilda captain Danny Frawley will be returning home to the Saints in 2015.

Frawley has agreed to join the club in a part-time role as a specialist defensive coach.

Frawley, who held the St Kilda games captaincy record until he was surpassed last year by Nick Riewoldt, will assist the Saints backline coach and use his extensive coaching experience to help advise St Kilda’s tall defenders and forwards as well as the St Kilda coaching staff and the Saints Player Academy.

The former full-back played 240 games, of which he captained 177 in a stellar 12-year career with the Saints. He led the team to finals appearances in 1991 and 1992, breaking an 18-year finals drought for the club.

In 2007 he was inducted to the St Kilda Hall of Fame.
Following his retirement in 1995, Frawley took up a role as an assistant coach at Collingwood which he held for four years before he was appointed senior coach of Richmond – a position he held for five years.

After he finished at the Tigers, Frawley embarked on a successful career in the football media and the role as CEO of the AFL Coaches Association.

He will be combining his media duties with his new role at the Saints.
