Werribee President John Nicol was full of praise for the former Bulldog.

I am excited by his football philosophies and look forward to seeing where he can take our football club in the futureâ€.
West is equally excited.
â€œThe chance to coach my own team after a few years as an assistant at AFL level is fantastic. 2012 is a new year, and with it comes new challenges and opportunities. I am looking forward to what lies ahead for the Werribee Football Club and am proud to be a part of itâ€.

Good luck to him for pulling on his own club and giving the flick to the farce that is the AFL assistant coaching merry go round.
We might be from the bush. but we ain't green
I reckon it's a really good appointment. I hope Werribee can really go deep into the finals. They need more night footy played down there as well. If they get off to a flyer, crowds and membership will surely follow.
