Alistair Clarkson reckons he is staying put at Hawthorn, but punters haven’t given up on the idea of him jumping ship to Adelaide, still a shot at $6.00 with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au to coach the Crows next year.
Stuart Dew is once again looming as the man most likely to get the gig, the best backed overall and favourite at $3.50.
Local Nathan Bassett is also still in contention at $6.00, while Hawthorn’s Brendan Bolton has been the best backed behind Dew and Clarkson at $8.00.
Bulldog assistant Brent Montgomery has been the biggest mover overall, in from $26 to $10.
“The merry-go-round for who will coach the Crows continues and punters are still thinking Alistair Clarkson is in the running. Stewie Dew has been the front runner since day one, but there is also plenty of support for Bolton,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Shaun Anderson.
