After a 171-game career for Hawthorn and Sydney, Ben McGlynn stepped straight into the coaching caper following his retirement in 2016. 

Joining the Saints for Season 2017, the crafty Swan helped develop the Saints’ emerging small forward fleet for three seasons before moving into a development role. 

Appointed as the stoppage coach in 2021, McGlynn is set to transition into the role of assistant midfield coach for the 2022 season.
