The grandson of Collingwood premier rover Jack Beveridge was recruited to Melbourne play as a forward/rover, but found his opportunities limited in three of four seasons on the list.
After 12 games in his first season, where he also won the Reserves Best and Fairest, he played just three the next year and finished runner-up by a vote to teammate Rod Keogh in the Reserves grade Gardiner Medal.
Beveridge's best season came when he played 21 games for the free scoring 1991 Demons team, but he fell out of favour again the next year and appeared just six times before being traded to Footscray in 1993.
He played 31 games in three seasons for the Bulldogs before joining St Kilda, where his father had worked as a recruiting officer, for the 1996 season. There he played a further 45 games over four years, as well as the Saints' 1996 night premiership side. He was later named in the Greek Team of the Century, qualifying through his maternal grandfather.
In 2001 he played for Frankston in the VFL and in 2006 Beveridge coached St. Bedes in the amateurs. After three seasons with St Bedes, and three premierships in C, B and A grade, he joined Collingwood as Development Manager and won a flag with the Pies in his second season.
In 2012 Beveridge was an assistant coach at Hawthorn, and in the 2014 NAB Challenge he took charge of the team for one game - a 130 point win. At the end of that season he was named Western Bulldogs senior coach, leading to them to their first premiership since 1954 two years later.
