Bill was appointed the Uni Whites senior coach in January 2010. Bill played professionally in the 70’s after representing South Australia from under 14s through to under 23s. He also played for the Uni Blacks and coached various Adelaide University teams.

After three months in charge, Bill was unable to continue in his position at the Whites due to illness. Bill died the following September.
