    There is either a major leak during this whole interview process our it's a lot of media speculation. I tend to think it's the latter but given the way this has twisted and turned it shows what a great job Liam Pickering did keeping the Franklin deal out of the rumor mill for so long.

    No new news there. Seems to me that a few other news stories have been pulled together for this one.

    Re: Luke Beveridge firms as coach

    If you go to news.com.au they have a story about why Craig would be a great choice as coach (http://www.news.com.au/sport/afl/for...-1227119916454),

    and then one on Beveridge (http://www.news.com.au/sport/afl/luk...-1227119859172)

    and then in both articles they allude to a combination of the two being at the club

    The media are covering all angles on the story and then after the decision is made they write a narrative to fit what they've already said.

    The overwhelming sense is that nobody really knows what we are thinking beyond speculation

    All I took out of that article is that both Beveridge and Monty have been interviewed and either one of them could get the job.

    Nothing article really.

    I do wonder who our coach will be.

    Last time it was Leon Cameron. No one had even mentioned B.Mac.

    I'm am half expecting a bolt from the blue.

    Agree azabob!
    After the TBoyd trade,I would not be suprised if our new appointed coach was from totally left field.

    Not according to Channel 7 news. Also Craig said he is only available as Head Coach not as Director of Coaching. Otherwise he will stay where he is.

    Cheers Bulldog4life.

    Maybe not promising but still sounds like the door is ever so slightly ajar, it is a head coach we are after..

    Western Bulldogs close to announcing coach

    The Western Bulldogs are closing on signing a new coach with highly rated assistant Luke Beveridge strongly favoured to take the top job.


    The Bulldogs were hopeful of naming a new coach before the senior players returned from leave on Monday and remain confident they will yet do so by then, but they are not wedded to that time frame accepting that if the process goes a day or two longer they will take the time they need. Regardless they expect to have a new coach within the week.


    Former Geelong premiership coach Mark Thompson's split from Essendon where he had been senior coach during James Hird's suspension this year, will not alter the process or the timing for the Bulldogs who were understood to have no interest in Thompson in a senior role.


    Former Adelaide coach Neil Craig, who is head of coaching development and strategy at Essendon has also been interviewed for the senior coach's position and possibly a mentoring role to a young coach at the Bulldogs.


    It was thought the Dogs process had narrowed the candidates to a choice between Craig and Beveridge and that the decision by Essendon and Thompson to split in part revealed a likelihod that Craig would remain at the Bombers. Essendon is understood to be confident that Craig will be at the Dons next year.


    Candidates for the Bulldogs job had been advised that they were likely to need to fit within a structure of existing assistant coaches - Daniel Giansiracusa coaching the forwards, Joel Corey the midfield, Rohan Smith the defenders and Steven King the rucks - while Brent Montgomery would remain as senior assistant coach.


    Were Montgomery - who has also been a candidate for the senior position - to get the job, obviously that structure would change.


    Beveridge was interviewed by the Dogs upon his return from a trip overseas and appears to be firming for the job. He remains due to take up a position at St Kilda as director of coaching after being poached from Hawthorn where he had worked for three years, this year as backline coach. The Saints were understood to be consoldating the view that Beveridge may not actualy arrive at the club for his new job.


    Experienced assistant coach Leigh Tudor has been in the running for the role while experienced Fremantle assistant coach and former west coast Eagles forward Peter Sumich withdrew from the process last week for family reasons.

    Re: Luke Beveridge firms as coach

    During 2016 we had a huge run of injuries.

    Not once did Beveridge lament the injuries - his attitude was; one player out, the next one comes in.

    Why over the past few years has he changed his language?

    Is this because in 2016 we had no expectations?

    Is he now feeling the added pressure and is using injuries as an excuse?

    Does the coach publicly lamenting our injury run, sub consciously give the players an out?

    Did he lament it? Or was he asked a question about missing a few defenders in the context of a small forward getting off the chain last night?

    He brought up how many players on the list we've used which he has been using since he moved on from the list being young trope.
    Technically true but they are get out of jail free responses.
    We were young by design.
    We constantly have a large injury list: why?
