Brisbane have confirmed former Fremantle coach Mark Harvey will join the club as Michael Voss' senior assistant.
Harvey, who was sacked by the Dockers in September to make way for Ross Lyon, was highly sought after with a number of clubs vying for his signature.
But the 46-year-old eventually settled on Brisbane and is looking forward to starting his new role.
"When I spoke to the club initially, I was impressed by the strong desire they showed in returning to the top and the processes and plans they have in place to ensure they reach it," said Harvey.
"They have a very talented and developing young list and it's clear they want sustained success."
"I'm rapt to be involved with the Lions and I'm looking forward to working closely with Michael Voss and the playing group to ensure the team and the club continues to move in the right direction."
Brisbane Lions general manager of football operations Dean Warren said Harvey would be an excellent addition to the club's coaching ranks.
"Mark is an outstanding coach in his own right and we are delighted to have been able to secure someone of his calibre," said Warren.
"Mark will be an outstanding addition to Michael Voss' coaching panel from both a cultural perspective and with the football experience and knowledge that he brings."
"His strong desire to continue his coaching career in Brisbane is also a great indication that we are building a club where people aspire to be and perform at an elite level."
Harvey played 206 games for the Bombers across a 14-year career that included three premierships and a best and fairest in 1992.
