Specialist coach

Chapman spent 2019 as a specialist kicking coach for the Richmond VFLW team, where the Tigers improved from the competition’s worst offender of “clanger kicks” to the most effective kicking team in the league. 

The former AFL defender played 76 games at Brisbane and Hawthorn between 1993 and 2000, and in 2004 was signed in the NFL by the Green Bay Packers as a punter.

Chapman is now the Director and Founder of Prokick Australia, a company that coaches fledgling punters such as former Tigers Ben Griffiths and Ben Lennon, to punting scholarships and contracts in US College Football and the NFL.

Chapman has been a line coach for the AFLW Tigers since 2020.
