Career highlights

Daniel 'Dan' Minogue (born 4 September 1891; died 27 July 1961) was an Australian rules footballer in the (then) Victorian Football League.

Minogue was a courageous centre half-back as epitomised when he sustained a broken collarbone playing for Collingwood Football Club in the first minute of the 1911 Grand Final and then playing out the entire match.

Unhappy at the treatment of Jim Sadler,[1] one of his former teammates at Collingwood, his request to transfer to Richmond upon his return from AIF service during World War I created ill feeling and he had to stand out of competition for twelve months in order to secure the transfer.

In addition to playing at three VFL clubs he coached at five clubs - a record that has never been equalled.

In 1996 Minogue was inducted into the Australian Football Hall of Fame.
