Originally a two time premiership player at Scotch, the former Saint Reserves Best and Fairest played 138 games, won a senior best and fairest and represented Victoria over a decade but retired at the end of the 1977 season after missing most of the season after a knee injury and having several operations. He made a comeback with St Kilda Reserves during 1978.
After being linked to the Sandringham coaching job, 29-year-old Elliott was signed by Melbourne before the 1979 season. His brothers Robert and Bruce followed him to the Demons and they all played together in Round 5, 1979.
Elliott moved to Port Adelaide in the SANFL in 1980 but only played one game in an injury hit campaign. He then coached Seymour to a Goulburn League Premiership before returning to South Australia in charge of West Torrens. He was at Woodville in 1985 and later returned to West Torrens.
Elliott later served as CEO of North Adelaide before moving to the A-League as Chief Executive of Adelaide United in 2010.
