He was awarded Geelong's captaincy in 1999, but did not play a game that season due to injury. The falling out between the club and Colbert caused great controversy. He was traded for Cameron Mooney and draft picks that yielded, amongst others, six-time All Australian and two-time Best and Fairest winner Corey Enright. Mooney retired a dual premiership player with the Cats and Enright retired as a three time premiership player.
In 2006 he joined the West Coast Eagles as one of their back-room staff. It was on a part-time basis, based in Melbourne.
He was a boundary rider for Fox Sports including post-match interviews and one-on-one interviews for Fox Sports AFL of the Ablett brothers and a one-on-one interview with Adam Simpson on his 250th game for the Kangaroos.
