Bulldogs General Manager of Football, Phil Gould, was pleased to have someone of Potter's experience taking charge for the rest of the season:

"It is great to have a genuine legend returning to the club. Michael has extensive experience in the game and will bring a new voice and new ideas to our players. 

We really appreciate Michael stepping up to help our club at this time."

Potter was excited about the opportunity to help the club through an important period :

"I'm very honoured to be back at the Bulldogs. I wish it were under different circumstances as I've known Trent for a long time and I really feel for him.

I will do what I can to help the club at this time."
