Port Adelaide legend Kane Cornes has expressed his concerns over the potential appointment of ex-Richmond coach Damien Hardwick as the new head coach of Gold Coast Suns. Cornes believes it would be a “terrible look” for Hardwick to take on the role so soon after leaving the Tigers due to feeling burnt out.
Hardwick left Richmond in May and has since been linked to the vacant coaching position at the Suns following Stuart Dew’s dismissal. Cornes voiced his disapproval, stating, “It’s a terrible look to quit Richmond after trading away your draft picks, saying you’re mentally burnt out, and two weeks later … say you’re ready to go.”
The Suns are considering other options as well, with show host Craig Hutchison suggesting Port Adelaide coach Ken Hinkley as a potential long-term replacement. The struggling Suns have had a history of changing coaches, including Guy McKenna, Rodney Eade, and Stuart Dew. Hutchison emphasized the need for the Suns to make a significant change.
However, leading AFL journalist Caroline Wilson believes that Hardwick is the only viable option for the Suns. She highlighted Hardwick’s impressive record with three premierships, making him an attractive choice for Gold Coast.
Meanwhile, the Suns find themselves in a crucial position as they face the Giants in a must-win game on Sunday to keep their hopes of making the finals alive.
