Former Melbourne skipper Brad Green has been recruited by Carlton as a midfield development coach.
Green joined former Collingwood mentor Mick Malthouse ahead of their first official pre-season training session at Visy Park later on Monday.
Green retired in round 22 this year after a 254-game career during which he was captain of the Demons for the 2011 season.
He said he was excited to begin his coaching career under one of the greats.
"I am really excited about this next stage of my AFL career," Green told afl.com.au.
"I said when I announced my retirement from playing that I was passionate about a career in the coaching department as I want to continue to be involved in the game I love.
"It is fantastic to have this opportunity and very exciting to join the Carlton Football Club and to have the opportunity to work with Mick Malthouse and the coaching team."
Green, a best and fairest winner with Melbourne in 2010, played under Malthouse with the Australian International Rules team in Ireland in 2010.
