No rush to lock in Blues AFL coach

Carlton chief executive Steven Trigg says the list of candidates to become the Blues’ next fulltime coach is below 20, with caretaker John Barker a leading contender.

Trigg says Barker has a “unique and ideal” place to impress for the role, with the small upturn in the AFL club’s fortunes – in which they’ve won two of their last three games after a woeful start to the season – impressing the Carlton hierarchy.

The selection panel has met three times, with no timeline set on confirming their senior coach for next season onwards as a permanent replacement after Mick Malthouse moved on in May.
