Fremantle have appointed former Western Bulldogs utility Todd Curley as the AFL club's new midfield coach.

Curley, who has been coach of WAFL side West Perth for the past three seasons, played three games for Collingwood in 1994 before racking up 115 with the Bulldogs from 1996-2001.

The 35-year-old has been drafted in to replace Peter German, who left the Dockers this year.

"You always strive to be the best you can in whatever you do, so the opportunity to go to the next level is fantastic," Curley said.

"Im super keen to help the playing group improve and, hopefully, strive for the ultimate success, which is why everyone plays the game."

Fremantle have also recruited former Port Adelaide strength and conditioning coach Chris Spinks to the club.

"It is a great coup for the Fremantle Football Club," chief executive Steve Rosich said.

"We will have two first class operators in their field who bring to the table a wealth of experience in managing international programs for national athletes." Meanwhile, current Socceroos fitness coach and head of sports science Darren Burgess has been retained as Fremantle's sports science consultant.

Rosich said the club was edging closer to appointing an additional assistant coach to replace Chris Bond, who is now the club's general manager of football operations.
