John Worsfold, who coached West Coast to the premiership in 2006, said he hasn’t closed the door on returning to coach in the league, but isn’t sitting by the phone waiting for a call either. Worsfold left his post at the completion of the 2013 campaign after a dozen years in charge of the Eagles. The 46-year-old is currently the chairman of the league’s coaches’ association and is open to a return to a head coaching position.

Worsfold recently spoke to the media about the possibility of returning and remarked,
If the opportunity was right and I felt ready to go back into that lifestyle then I’d still be keen to do that. I’m not sitting here sweating on what’s happening at clubs in terms of coaching personnel and what decisions clubs are making. That’s the least of my worries at the moment.

John Elliot, the former president of the Carlton Blues, recently said that Worsfold would be a good choice for any club that’s in the hunt for an new, but experienced coach. Mick Malthouse is the current Blues’ coach, and the club has publicly stated that he’ll remain in the job until the end of the season, but many fans feel he’ll soon be sacked. Elliot is one of those who believe Malthouse won’t be with Carlton next season as the team sits in 18th and last place on the ladder with a disappointing record of 1-6. Don’t forget to head to CrownBet AFL Info for the latest events in the footy world.
Elliot said he doesn’t think Malthouse will keep his job unless the Blues can climb into the top eight in the standings. He also believes if Malthouse, who has three premierships under his belt, is sacked then Worsfold would be the perfect replacement for him. Worsfold won flags with the Eagles in 1992 and 1994 as a player and then coached the club to a Grand Final triumph in 2006. Elliot said if a team plans on replacing its coach it should be looking for one who has proven himself.
Elliot went on to state about the Blues,
They’ve got to be looking around. I’d chase Worsfold. He’s an exceptional fellow. I regard he and Stephen Kernahan as the two best people I’ve met in football.
Malthouse recently coached his record-setting 715th VFL/AFL contest, but his side was also blown out by Collingwood by 75 points. They’ve also dropped games against the struggling Brisbane Lions as well as being hammered by 78 points by Greater Western Sydney. However, Malthouse has urged Carlton fans to stick with the club while they navigate these hard times. The CrownBet AFL Info site is one of the easiest and quickest ways to keep up to date on off of this year’s football news.
Malthouse admitted that his side is struggling, but claimed they’re still trying their best even though the results don’t show it. The coach said his squad had six days to prepare themselves for their next match against the Geelong Cats on May 22. He’s hoping that ruckman Matthew Kreuzer will be back in the lineup for the match and they can redeem themselves after their round seven beating at the hands of GWS.
