What Is Eddie Betts Doing Now?
The Geelong Football Club currently employs Eddie Betts as a development coach. The 34-year-old Indigenous legend will play an undetermined number of games for the Magpies while also participating in community service in the Northern Territory.
At Howard Springs, Betts and his family are presently in quarantine. After 350 games with Carlton and Adelaide and 640 goals throughout a spectacular 17-season career, Betts announced his retirement from the AFL in August.
He has been hired as a Geelong development coach part-time. He will juggle that position with a welfare position where he will collaborate with Indigenous liaison officers at other AFL clubs the following year.
Betts stated earlier this month that since ending his career as an AFL player, he now had a "larger role" to play in combating racism.
