Career highlights

Originally from Scoresby, McCormack played with North Melbourne's strong under 19 side before transferring to Victorian Football Association (VFA) club Dandenong. After impressing in the VFA, McCormack was drafted by Carlton at number 19 in the 1992 Pre-season Draft.

McCormack made his senior debut for Carlton in 1992 but was unable to cement a spot in the senior team, playing only fourteen matches in three seasons. McCormack was subsequently delisted by Carlton at the end of the 1994 AFL season[2] and transferred to Norwood Football Club in the South Australian National Football League (SANFL).

In 1998 McCormack won the Fos Williams Medal, representing the SANFL against the West Australian Football League. He moved back to Victoria in 2006 and began coaching East Ringwood in the Eastern Football League. After coaching East Ringwood for four seasons, McCormack moved to become coach of Old Brighton Grammarians in the Victorian Amateur Football Association (VAFA). After a successful first season, McCormack re-signed with Old Brighton to coach them again in 2011 before accepting a role as an assistant coach with the Oakleigh Chargers in the TAC Cup for the 2012 season.
