Redan has turned to a favourite son to take on the senior coaching role in the Ballarat Football League next season.
Two-time premiership coach and three-time premiership player Brendan Peace is back at the helm of the Lions.
Peace fills the vacancy left by Eammon Gill, who stepped aside at the end of Redan's finals campaign.
Gill and Peace were joint coaches at Redan in 2012.
Redan president Damian Linton said it was exciting to have Peace back at the club in the senior coaching role.
Peace, 30, last played with the Lions in 2014 - leaving at the end of that season to travel overseas.
He joined Torquay in the Bellarine league this year, but suffered a season-ending knee injury at a pre-season training session, tearing an anterior cruciate ligament.
This will be Peace's third stint with the Lions.
He was a 2006 premiership player before spending 2007 and 2008 with North Ballarat Roosters in the VFL.
Peace returned to Redan as playing coach in 2009 to lead the Lions to a premiership and went on to take them to another flag in 2011.
His partnership with Gill the following season was his last year as coach.
He is one of Redan's most decorated and most highly respected players over the past decade - winning the 2005 and 2006 club best fairests, the latter being shared with Julian Field.
He was given the honour of captaining the BFL representative team in in 2014 - nine years after first wearing the navy blue of the league - and was named in Redan's team of the decade for 2000-2009.
