After St Kilda parted ways with Alan Richardson online bookmaker Sportsbet has opened a market on who'll be the next senior coach
Online bookmaker Sportsbet has opened a market on who will be St Kilda's next senior coach after the club decided to part ways with Alan Richardson.
Former North Melbourne coach Brad Scott is the $1.75 favourite, while caretaker Brett Ratten is next in line at $3.50.
Current Port Adelaide assistant Michael Voss is locked at $6 alongside Saints legend Robert Harvey.
Among some of the more unlikely appointments are the G-Train Frasier Gherig, former Saints small forward Steven Milne and former St Kilda coaching duo Scott Watters and Grant Thomas.
All four men are at the $41 quote.
It was the move that the footy world expected would happen sooner or later with the Saints failing to make the finals under the six year Alan Richardson tenure.
St Kilda President Andrew Bassat said the time was now to "find a new voice" .
"There is no escaping the significant setbacks we have faced this year in regards to player availability, and these, as you would expect, have been taken into account in our decision," Bassatt said.
"Ultimately, after six years under Alan's leadership, the team performance and the position in which we find ourselves isn't where it needs to be.
"On behalf of everyone at the football club, from the board to the players, staff and supporters, I want to thank Alan for his commitment and contribution."
St Kilda's next move is unclear at this stage.
Bassat said any talk that they have already conducted a search for their next coach is baseless, but speaking on AFL 360 on Fox Footy dual premiership Kangaroo David King stated he’d be “staggered” if Brad Scott wasn’t coaching St Kilda in 2020.
