Following an illustrious 283-game career at Hawthorn, Roughead moved smoothly from player into coach as he joined St Kilda at the end of 2019 to work across list management, the club’s leadership and mentoring program and performing a match day role.

Bringing the experience of playing in four premiership-winning sides, as well as earning three All-Australians and the 2013 Coleman Medal, the former Hawks’ skipper will work with some of the club’s emerging key position players.
