Damien Hardwick, Head Coach, Gold Coast Suns
An uncompromising and hard-nosed defender, Damien Hardwick made a substantial impact on the Australian Football League. He began his playing career with Essendon, amassing 153 games and notably contributing to their 2000 premiership.

Hardwick’s journey into coaching commenced at Hawthorn as an assistant coach under Alistair Clarkson in 2005, playing a significant role in the club’s premiership success.

Following his appointment as Richmond’s Senior Coach in 2009, Hardwick expertly guided the club to three consecutive finals appearances in 2013, 2014, and 2015. Hardwick was the inspiration behind Richmond’s stunning revival in 2017. Under his leadership, Richmond secured their first premiership in 37 years. Building on this success, he led Richmond to their second premiership in 2019. Despite the challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic, Hardwick coached Richmond to their third premiership win within 4 years.

After coaching Richmond for a record breaking 307 games, Hardwick announced his resignation from Richmond in 2023. This year, Hardwick is taking on a new challenge as Senior Coach of the Gold Coast Suns, embarking on an exciting new chapter in his illustrious career.
