In 2005, Schofield returned to Perth and linked up with the Fremantle Dockers, playing 12 games in two years before retiring at the end of 2006.

He won three premierships for WAFL side Subiaco as a player (2006-2008) before turning to coaching.

He started as an assistant coach at Claremont in the WAFL in 2012 for just one year after being offered the senior coaching role at Subiaco.

Schofield won three flags in six years as head coach of the Lions, as well as, playing in another two grand finals, to go down as the most successful coach in their history.

At the end of the 2018 season, Schofield was offered his first coaching role in the AFL, seeing him return to Alberton as the midfield coach.
