Former Hawthorn sharpshooter Ben Dixon has joined St Kilda as a goalkicking coach for the 2018 season.
Dixon had a career goalkicking accuracy rate of 61.6 percent with 282 goals from his 203 games.
And it looks as though he has his work cut out for him given St Kilda had the second-worst goalkicking percentage (48) in the competition in 2017 behind only the Bulldogs (47).
Dixon was drafted by the Hawks in 1994 and made his debut in 1997. He retired in 2007.

Dixon turned down Port Adelaide to accept Saints' role. Reckon Saints will improve goal kicking by 5%+ next year.— Jay Clark (@ClarkyHeraldSun) October 3, 2017
