The Lions' raid on premiership Bulldogs has continued, with champion defender Dale Morris joining Brisbane as a development coach for the 2023 season.

Brisbane finalised their coaching contingent on Thursday, with Morris a welcomed addition to Chris Fagan's strikeforce.

Morris brings with him premiership experience and over 250 games in the AFL, a career where he also won All-Australian honours in 2008.

The 39-year-old called time on his playing career at the end of the 2019 season before joining the Western Bulldogs' coaching ranks.

Morris departed the club at the end of last year, and after spending some time in Queensland has decided to link up with the Lions.

“I'm really excited and grateful to be joining the Brisbane Lions coaching group,” Morris told Lions Media.

“The Lions are such a proud Club and have done a lot right over a long period of time, so I can't wait to contribute to this.

“I'm pumped with the opportunity of working with such a talented and exciting group of players and coaches, and be part of a great football Club.”

Along with the announcement of Morris' arrival, the Lions have revealed further changes to their coaching structure ahead of the new year.

2022 assistants Jed Adcock and Murray Davis have switched roles, with Adcock moving from the forward line to defence, and Davis vice-versa.

On top of his midfield duties with Brisbane, Cameron Bruce will take on the role as stoppage coach, replacing Ben Hudson - who has been appointed as the Lions' VFL coach and will work with the club's ruckmen.

Another ex-Bulldog in Mitch Hahn will take on the role of Academy coach of the Lions' male side, while premiership AFLW Lion Emma Zielke will lead the club's female Academy cohort.

Brisbane has also confirmed Mark Stone as their strategy coach, rounding out the final changes to their coaching team for 2023.

Scott Borlace remains the head of development, while Damien Austin will continue to lead high performance.
