Fans of the AFL are curious to find out about the personal life of Chris Scott, mostly about his wife, Sarah Scott.

He spent three seasons as an assistant coach at Fremantle before being named the senior coach of Geelong on October 15, 2010.

Chris Scott Playing Career

With the Brisbane Bears, Scott made his AFL debut in 1994 and won the Norwich Rising Star award.

He used his strength to outmuscle opposition forwards and developed into one of the AFL’s hardest defensive players.

Some fans dubbed him and his brother Brad ‘the Kray brothers’ because of their vicious and powerful playing methods.

Between 1994 and 1996, Chris participated in 55 games and scored 23 goals with the Brisbane Bears.

After the end of the 1996 season, he joined the newly formed Brisbane Lions and created more history. 

Scott won the premiership in 2001 and 2002, but an injury in 2003 prevented him from winning a third trophy. Likewise, he also took part in the 2004 Lions championship game.

After announcing his retirement from playing on August 28, 2007, he played his last game on September 1, 2007, in Brisbane’s round 22 encounter against Geelong.

Between 1997 and 2007, Chris participated in 160 games with the Brisbane Lions, scoring 56 goals.
