The West Coast complexion that has fastened to WAFL club Perth has grown stronger, with the Demons' coaching staff now home to an array of ex-Eagles, and potentially a Fremantle great.

The Lathlain-located club, who are coming off a disappointing three-win 2022 campaign, have wrung several off-field changes ahead of the new season, including a senior coaching alteration.

Peter German was revealed as Perth's new senior coach last September, taking over the reins from the departed Gary Moss on a three-year deal.

German's arrival isn't the only change for the Demons, nor is it the most high profile.

As revealed by The West Australian in December, West Coast champion Ben Cousins has joined the red and black ahead of the 2023 season, with the Brownlow Medal winner set to work with Perth's WAFL colts side this year in a part-time role.

Cousins, whose father Bryan played 240 games for Perth, returns to the football landscape following a well-documented and dark period that ended his AFL career abruptly.

The West Coast premiership star has linked up with 7 News colleague Adrian Barich at the Demons, with Barich, another ex-Eagle, having returned to Perth as the club's president.

The duo aren't the only former West Coast players set to lead off-field roles for Perth this year, with former Collingwood midfielder and Eagle Josh Smith understood to have been appointed as the club's midfield coach, per The West Australian.

Smith recently called time on his career after battling injuries that kept him to five matches last season for the Demons, with the Redland product now stepping into a coaching role at the club.

Former uncapped West Coast defender Brodie Riach also holds a role with Perth's talent manager.

Unconfirmed reports have suggested West Coast great Matt Priddis and recently retired Fremantle record games holder David Mundy are also set to link up with Perth with off-field roles.

Priddis, who called time on his career in 2017, played 240 games for West Coast across 12 years with the club, where he won a Brownlow Medal and captained the club.

Mundy ended his long-standing career with the Dockers last year after 19 seasons in purple, where he played 376 games - the eighth most by any player in AFL history.
