While his playing career included a premiership for Richmond in the VFL, he is best known for his Australian Football League coaching career.
Malthouse is the most successful coach in the history of the West Coast Eagles, holding several club coaching records including the most grand final appearances (1991, 1992, 1994), most premierships (1992,1994 - both against Geelong), most games coached (243) and won (146) as well as the highest win ratio.
The 1992 Grand Final win was the first AFL premiership won by a team from outside Victoria and was the West Coast Eagles first ever senior premiership.
He has also coached Collingwood to Grand Finals in 2002, 2003, 2010 and 2011; tasting success in the 2010 Grand Final Replay, leading Collingwood to its first Premiership since 1990.
Recruited from North Ballarat, Malthouse started his football career with St Kilda in 1972, playing 53 senior games including three finals. After being told by then-coach Allan Jeans that he would struggle to get a game in the senior side due to a surfeit of similar-skilled players, he departed for Richmond midway through the 1976 season.
He was Footscray's senior coach from 1984 to 1989. During his time at the Bulldogs he was known for his tough stance on many players, including Doug Hawkins. The teams final standings in his years in charge were 7th (1984), 3rd (1985), 8th (1986), 7th (1987), 8th (1988) and 13th (1989). He impressed with his dedication and professionalism.
West Coast Eagles (1990–1999)
For ten years from 1990 he was senior coach for the West Coast Eagles. During his tenure as coach the Eagles made the finals every year, including 1992 and 1994 premierships and 1991 grand finalists. Final minor premiership ladder positions were 3rd, 1st, 4th, 6th, 1st, 5th, 4th, 5th, 7th and 5th (1990–1999).
Recruited to the Magpies in 2000 by Collingwood president Eddie McGuire, Malthouse has coached Collingwood to the finals in six out of his ten seasons as coach including grand final appearances in 2002, 2003, 2010 (twice) and 2011. In 2010, after the first drawn AFL/VFL grand final since 1977, Collingwood claimed premiership success with a resounding 56-point win over St Kilda in the replay. This was the club's biggest ever win in a grand final and the first since 1990. In July 2009, McGuire produced a succession plan in which Malthouse was to hand over the coaching reins to club legend Nathan Buckley at the end of the 2011 season. In 2011, Malthouse guided Collingwood to another grand final against the Geelong Cats. After the dramatic three point win over Hawthorn in a preliminary final, he was shown on TV in tears in the coach's box after his side came from 17 points down at the final change to book their place in Malthouse's fifth grand final as Collingwood coach and his eighth overall. Collingwood lost the 2011 AFL Grand Final to Geelong by 38 points. The game was his final one as Collingwood coach. Malthouse advised that he would not be taking on the position as Director of Coaching at Collingwood after the loss and that he had made this decision six weeks earlier.
Malthouse's wife is Nanette. Their daughter Christi has been a sports reporter and AFL boundary rider for Network Ten. Christi's son Zachary was born in December 2008 and is Malthouse's first grandchild. The Malthouses also have another daughter, Danielle, and two sons, Cain and Troy.
Mick Malthouse was recently quoted as saying he would like a senior coaching role with Cricket Australia.mick-malthouse-to-ponder-future-in-cricket Mick Malthouse has released an autobiography The Ox is Slow but the Earth is Patient. http://www.michaelmalthouse.com.au/
