Who will be Brisbane Lions’ next AFL coach

SIX OF THE CONTENDERS TO REPLACE SACKED BRISBANE COACH JUSTIN LEPPITSCH

JOHN BARKER

AFL games coached: 14 (3 wins, 11 losses)

Served as caretaker coach of Carlton in 2015 following Mick Malthouse’s sacking. Stayed on as an assistant at Princes Park after missing out on the top job

IS HE A CHANCE: Boasts 10 years of coaching experience. Was part of the first intake for the AFL’s coaching accreditation course and earlier this year was invited into Socceroos camp to learn more from Ange Postecoglou

Crownbet odds: $5.50

STUART DEW

AFL games coached: 0

The two-time premiership player became John Longmire’s senior assistant at Sydney in 2013

IS HE A CHANCE: Was “very close” to joining Melbourne as Paul Roos’ successor but then less keen on Adelaide and Carlton jobs last year

Crownbet odds: $6

BRETT RATTEN

AFL games coached: 120 (60 wins, 1 draw, 59 losses)

Unceremoniously dumped as coach of Carlton in 2012 to accommodate the arrival of Malthouse. His stocks have since rocketed after joining Hawthorn

IS HE A CHANCE: Appointed assistant coach at the Hawks in 2013 and is highly regarded by players at the triple reigning premiers

Crownbet odds: $6

PAUL ROOS

AFL games coached: 268 (137 wins, 2 draws, 129 losses)

Ended Sydney’s 72-year premiership drought in 2005 and has achieved wonders in three seasons at Melbourne

IS HE A CHANCE: The 53-year-old has declared he won’t coach again and it’s hard to see that stance changing.

Crownbet odds: $7.50

ROBERT HARVEY

AFL games coached: 0

Senior assistant coach at Collingwood, has also been in the box for Carlton and St Kilda

IS HE A CHANCE: Overlooked for the vacant St Kilda job after Ross Lyon walked out on the club in 2011. Has since learned plenty and was part of first intake for the AFL’s coaching accreditation course

Crownbet odds: $12

SCOTT CAMPOREALE

AFL games coached: 11 (7 wins, 4 losses)

Midfield coach at Adelaide, where he filled in admirably last year following Phil Walsh’s shock death

IS HE A CHANCE: An outsider but boasts a lot of experience, having started his apprenticeship under Kevin Sheedy at Essendon.

Crownbet odds: $34.
