Foley was drafted by Richmond using pick 3 in the 2003 AFL Rookie Draft, from the Geelong Falcons. He made his debut in Round 10, 2005 against the Melbourne, in a match well remembered for the horrific broken leg sustained by Tigers' star Nathan Brown.
In 2007, Foley had a break-out season, establishing himself as one of the AFL's best on-ballers. He was selected in the squad of 40 for the All-Australian team, but missed out when the official 22-man team was released in September 2007. He was runner-up in the Jack Dyer Medal count, polling only one vote behind Matthew Richardson.
In 2008, Foley was named as Richmond's deputy vice captain along with Chris Newman.
