Chris Connolly commenced his AFL career as a player for Melbourne Football Club. He played 84 games for the club between 1984 and 1989 before moving into the coaching arena.

He was coach of Eastern Ranges in the TAC Cup 1991 to 1995 and was assistant coach of Hawthorn Football Club 1991 to 1995. He was appointed senior coach of Fremantle Football Club (Dockers) at the conclusion of the 2001 season to rebuild the football department and establish on-field credibility. Fremantle was a club in disarray, wining only two games in the 2001 season, including a run of 17 losses in a row and winning the wooden spoon. The club also lost over $2.5m in the previous three years, and was $8m in debt.

Chris has moulded a skilled and accountable group of players and Fremantle is now one of the AFL's success stories.

Chris is also a much sought after corporate speaker who has the ability to articulate the elements of success in a humorous, motivational and down-to-earth style which is always a winner with any audience. His presentation includes a bridge between the business world and the world of competitive sport. His infectious good-natured humour always leaves audiences laughing.
