He also won the club’s fairest-and-best award that season.
After leaving West Perth at the end of the 1996 season, Harris was captain-coach of the Wodonga Raiders and led the side to the 1998 premiership in the Ovens and Murray League. In 2000 Harris became an assistant and development coach with the NSW/ACT Rams in the TAC Cup before returning to WA to coach West Perth from 2002 to 2005 when te Falcons beat Subiaco by 23 points in the 2003 grand final.
In 2006, Harris joined the West Coast Eagles as an assistant (forward coach) to John Worsfold and was closely involved with the club’s AFL premiership victory over the Sydney Swans that year. After leaving the Eagles at the end of 2008 Harris was development manager at Carlton for two years before he became the coach of Carlton’s VFL affiliate club, the Northern Bullants, for two seasons before deciding to settle in WA.
