Western Bulldogs veteran Jed Adcock has announced his retirement, with the former Brisbane skipper to pursue an AFL coaching career.

Adcock, 30, joined the Bulldogs as a rookie ahead of the 2016 season after he was delisted by the Lions after 206 games.

He has played seven matches with the Dogs - the last in round 19 - and will remain available for senior selection during the club's finals campaign.

"Although its only been one year, I've learned a lot both as a player and from a coaching standpoint," Adcock said.

"I'm ready to move on to the next phase of my life and career, which includes pursuing coaching at AFL level."

Adcock was a second-round pick at the 2003 draft and went on to captain Brisbane in 2013 and 2014.
