After being recruited from South Adelaide in the 1996 pre-season draft Goodwin played 275 games for Adelaide, including back-to-back premierships in his first two seasons.

After his playing career ended he joined Essendon as an assistant in 2010, and made his senior coaching debut in the last game of 2013 after James Hird was suspended by the AFL.

With Hird also suspended in 2014 Goodwin was promoted to senior assistant behind Mark Thompson as the side qualified for the finals. At the end of the year he joined Melbourne as an assistant coach despite the Crows job becoming available on the day before he joined Melbourne.

His five year deal included two seasons as senior assistant coach before taking on the senior coaching role from Paul Roos in 2017. In his first season his side had a narrow finals miss due to a Round 23 loss, then in 2018 they qualified for their first finals series since 2006 and made a Preliminary Final. Bigger things were expected in 2019 but the side plummeted down the ladder to 17th place with just five wins.

Goodwin's side rebounded in 2020, but still missed the finals, finishing 9th.
