Brad Ebert boasts 260 games at AFL level with both West Coast and Port Adelaide over a 13-year playing career.
Selected with pick No.13 in the 2007 NAB AFL Draft, Ebert played in the West for four seasons before returning to his native South Australia.
Once at Port Adelaide, he had a breakout season in 2012 and was subsequently named vice-captain of the club from 2013 – 2015, where he remained as a member of the leadership group until 2018.
His role as a leader at Alberton was underpinned by a selfless approach, with a focus on others and dedication to unite the group on a daily basis – all standout qualities that perfectly compliment the strong team and family values that are being engrained at IKON Park.
Ebert was a source of consistency during his nine years at Port Adelaide, and at the conclusion of the 2020 season, announced his retirement from AFL.
Following his playing career, he has most recently sat on the Football Sub-Committee for Port Adelaide, providing strategical guidance to the football department.
Now at IKON Park, the 32-year-old will work closely with Carlton Head of Development and VFL Coach Luke Power and will be instrumental in supporting players as they progress through the Blues’ development pathway as they challenge for senior selection.
