Giansiracusa a candidate for Carlton coaching job

Carlton have been reluctant to give up on Clarkson, but the fact that the club is interviewing a host of other candidates can be read as a signal that the Blues are pressing on with a process wider than what was first mooted by president Luke Sayers.

Ross Lyon, the ex-St Kilda and Fremantle coach, had been sounded out by Sayers and had declared interest in coaching Carlton, but subsequently withdrew after learning the process was slated to take between 30 and 45 days.

New board member and former champion Greg Williams is heading up the coach search, supported by three-time premiership coach David Parkin, board members Patty Kinnersley and Tim Lincoln and head of football Brad Lloyd, who has retained his position following the review of the football department that ended with the sacking of Teague and exit of some of their assistant coaches.

Should Brian Cook, the exiting Geelong chief executive, take up the same role with the Blues, as Geelong expects, he would join the panel, replacing removed CEO Cain Liddle.
