Doubt that big time. Clarko was pretty definitive about coaching Borethorn 2 weeks ago.
Yep Clarkson ain’t going nowhere. My gut feel says Mitchell has pulled out due to knowing he won’t get the Collingwood job and then having the fear of being smeared as that bloke who missed out.

He'll coach Hawthorn when Clarkson's current contract finishes.

Clarko to become Pies coach. Graham Wright went there in advance to set up the future for Clarko. I think this has been in the works for a while now and Buckley leaving has thrown a spanner in the works with the timing.

He still doesn’t have a head coaching role though. If Clarko pulls that team back up the ladder next year, you reckon they won’t look at extending him ? You bet your life they would.

I think he does have a role lined up and has for a little while. TBR's sources tell him Clarko has been learning some Michael Jackson on the guitar of late.

Well both of them have something lined up for sure. In 2023.

For Clarkson, he’ll be rolling into 2023 with apparently, 8 current coach’s contracts expiring - so they were saying on radio today. Seems a bit extreme and I don’t personally know if that’s right, but if there are in fact 8, he’ll be a huge chance with one you’d expect (providing he wants to coach that is.)

Been the whisper ever since Wright went there and Figgy started failing.

Figgy was supposed to see out his contract but probably heard of the moves afoot and left on his terms rather than be pushed.
Yeah but how does Clarko become Scum coach if he's gonna be Dorks coach in 2022 before Mitchell takes over?

Unless the Scum go with an interim next season like lolnorf with Shaw??

There will be non stop Calrko watch now.

Maybe Dimmas getting the arse and he's coming to Punt Road. :))

If Clarko decides to walk, Hawforn won't bother trying to stop him. Could easily switch to Colonwood if he wants it. Or anywhere else for that matter.

But they announced a succession plan for Clarko to babyfeed Mitchell next season. I doubt Clarko will continue elsewhere after 20 years. No-one wants the Scum job.

Kennett basically confirmed that they won’t stop Clarko walking early if another club comes for him before 2023.
