"He's obviously got a natural footy brain and perhaps a little bit of his experience with modern day football will help as well."
The Roos had six under 17 players in Saturday's 15-point win over Wodonga Saints.
Gun forward Trent Castles kicked 10 of the 18 goals to take his tally to 78 from 12 matches.
He's also looking to play out the year with a shoulder complaint, although he was 'carrying' it against the Saints.
Castles is contracted for next year.

Brent Lillis has coached the club the past two seasons.
