Collingwood midfielder Scott Pendlebury has reportedly landed a coaching role with Melbourne private school Haileybury.

The Keysborough-located school is currently coached by Essendon great Matthew Lloyd, who is already accompanied by three-time Melbourne best and fairest winner Nathan Jones.

Pendlebury, who recently announced his decision to step down from the role as Collingwood captain after a club record 206 games as skipper, has flagged his desire to step into coaching in the past.

"It's something I do want to do," Pendlebury previously told Triple M.

"I think for me it's really important that you do actually step away from the football club for a point of time, just to get a different view and a different perspective on things."

"I think the best thing for me is to step away, see a different club. I'd like to coach my own team.

"Then if the opportunity ever presents (to) come back as senior coach of Collingwood, I'd certainly look at it."

The first coaching move of his career is set to see Pendlebury join Lloyd and Jones at Haileybury as a midfield coach, according to News Corp. 

Pendlebury will bring with him over 350 games of experience in the AFL, a career that has seen the Sale product claim a premiership, a Norm Smith Medal, the AFLCA Champion Player of the Year Award, six All-Australian selections and five Copeland Trophies.

The 34-year-old is contracted at Collingwood for 2023, which will be his 18th season in the black and white.

Pendlebury will join Essendon great Jobe Watson in adding to the APS coaching ranks this year, with the former Bombers star named as Xavier's first team coach.
