Carlton have added former West Coast and Port Adelaide midfielder Brad Ebert to their coaching strikeforce for 2023.

Ebert will join Michael Voss' brigade as a development coach, bringing with him over 250 games of AFL experience.

The 32-year-old has worked under Voss during his playing days with the Power as well as beside the Blues senior coach, with Ebert stepping into a position on the Football Sub-Committee at Alberton after retiring in 2020.

Speaking to Carlton Media, Ebert stated he was hopeful the skills he developed during his time with the Power can be handed down to the Blues' emerging ranks.

“A big part of my role at Port Adelaide was to help drive standards within the team, and I aim to bring that same mentality to my work as a development coach at Carlton,” Ebert said.

“My aim is to support the younger members of the side, while assisting in their growth and development and impart knowledge to guide their decision making.

“I am a firm believer in driving high standards through a professional program and I am committed to bringing authenticity, adaptability, and humility to this position.

“It is a privilege to grow my coaching career under the guidance of Michael Voss, who I have already worked closely with during our time at Port Adelaide, and I have no doubt I will thrive under his leadership, just as the playing group do.

“I also look forward to working closely with Luke Power, who is so highly regarded in the development space, while also being an assistant coach for the VFL side, and I thank the Carlton Football Club for giving me the opportunity to do so.”

Brisbane champion Luke Power led Carlton's development ranks in 2022 and will share that role after being appointed as the senior coach of the club's VFL outfit.

Ebert will also hold a role with the Blues' VFL coaching team.
