David Mackay – Development Coach

Former Adelaide star Mackay is the newest face to join Hawthorn’s AFL department, having taken up a role as development coach ahead of the 2023 season.

Mackay initially joined the Box Hill-Hawthorn alliance ahead of the 2022 season, working within the VFL program while also acting as AFLW midfield coach.

He will continue to maintain his AFLW responsibilities at the club, while also helping to aid the development of Hawthorn’s AFL list next year.

Originally taken with Pick 48 in the 2006 national draft, Mackay went on to carve out an impressive 248-game career at the Crows which spanned 15 years.
