In his second year as defensive line coach, Salopek will continue working on the players’ backline craft.

Drafted with pick number six in the 2002 National Draft, Salopek played 121 games  for Port Adelaide across the midfield and half-back and was a part of the Club’s 2007 Grand Final team.

Since retiring, Salopek has remained involved in the football community, coaching and developing young talent alongside Harford at St Kevin’s College, now using his football experience to help Carlton’s midfield group develop on and off the field.

Back to AFLW coaches.
