David Teague was born in Katandra, near Shepparton, in 1981. After playing for Katandra, and the Murray Bushrangers in the TAC Cup he was drafted by North Melbourne in 2001. He played 33 games before moving to Carlton in 2004. In 2004 he won Carlton’s Best & Fairest and won the Robert Rose Award for the most courageous player in the League. He played 50 games for Carlton before becoming playing coach for the Northern Bullants in 2007.


In 2009 he coached the Bullants to their first Grand Final in 26 years and followed up in 2010 with another Grand Final. In 2011 he went west to the Eagles for 3 years as assistant coach, then to St Kilda in late 2013, and then to The Crows in late 2014. He was brought to the Crows by senior Coach Phil Walsh, who he had previously worked with at the Eagles. As the forward coach he was hailed as a hero and a genius in the Crows run to the Grand Final in 2017.


David wanted to return to Vic and was appointed assistant Coach at Carlton in late 2017, and then caretaker Coach in June 2019. As caretaker he changed the style of play to a freer and more attacking game which brought immediate results, and popular support from Carlton fans. After only 4 wins in the previous 43 games, David coached Carlton to 5 wins in 9 games. During Bolton’s 75 games as coach Carlton kicked 100 points only once, under Teague they have kicked 100 points twice and a 99 points. He has now been appointed senior Coach for 3 years.
