Returning to Carlton the next year he played in the 1906 and 1908 premierships, missing the middle flag due to suspension. Midway through 1909 he was elevated from captain to playing coach when the incumbent retired and led his side to a losing Grand Final against South Melbourne.
In March 1916 he reluctantly enlisted to fight in World War I, and was assigned to the 3rd Pioneer Battalion but attempted suicide while in training camp. He was discharged in August of that year, considered unfit for service. Later in life he moved to Mt Gambier where he passed away in 1960.
Elliott was the first Carlton player to rack up 200 games and was voted into their Hall of Fame in 1988.
