Adelaide Crows dual premiership captain Mark Bickley has rejoined the club as an assistant coach for the next two years.

Bickley, 39, played 272 AFL games for the Crows from 1991 to 2003 and captained the club from 1997 to 2000.

The club said he would bring a wealth of experience despite being out of football for five years.

Senior coach Neil Craig said Bickley's exact coaching role was yet to be settled.

"Mark's wealth of experience and football knowledge, coupled with his qualities as a person, will be a great asset to the club," Craig said.

"Mark has played in the midfield and in defence and this gives the club great flexibility in the coaching roles."

Bickley will end his role with Channel 9 in Adelaide at the end of his current contract in November.

He said he had enjoyed his time in the media but had decided football was his passion.

"I want to be involved at the highest level and fortunately for me I am able to return to my club to pursue that passion," Bickley said.
