He immediately appointed NRL coaching legend Wayne Bennett as his assistant and elevated former AFL player Matthew Lloyd to his leadership group.
It is understood Bennett will primarily handle any media engagements.
He also visited various prisons in the lead up to this announcement, in order to meet with nominees of The Frownlow Medal who are currently behind bars.
Sources have also confirmed that the former midfielder has made reservations for players at a mindfulness and wellness retreat in Thailand, right next door to the drug and alcohol rehabilitation centre so heavily frequented by Australian based footballers.
Clarkson was approached for comment following a training session and yelled,
“…Get out of my f#*@*en way!!” before adding “…Namaste.”
