Former North Melbourne Kangaroos coach Brad Scott has been tipped as the next coach at Collingwood.

According to AFL insider Caroline Wilson, Scott is a “frontrunner” to replace Nathan Buckley after the Magpies coach resigned last month.

“Collingwood has definitely contacted Craig Kelly, Brad Scott’s manager – currently head of AFL Victoria at the AFL, and also a frontrunner to replace Steve Hocking as head of footy at the AFL,” Wilson said on Nine’s Footy classified.

“Brad Scott has to make a decision, [on] what job he is going for.

“I understand… Brad is… well, what I’m hearing from people at the AFL is that maybe Brad hasn’t lost his appetite for coach and there’s every chance he’ll put himself in the process for the Collingwood Football club, and if he does, I think he has a good chance of getting that job.”

“He enjoyed working at Collingwood, working under Mick Malthouse, he has a great relationship with the footy cub, he has no doubts about the club at all with the problems that others are having so it’s going to be intriguing to see what he chooses to do,” Wilson added.

Former Collingwood president Eddie McGuire agreed that Scott was highly regarded at the club, but disagreed that a potential coach candidate would have reservations amid a turbulent year for the Magpies.

“He has been highly respected at Collingwood since his time there in 2009,” McGuire said.

“I think it’s going well enough with the club that they will say who they want and that person will probably say yes.

“I don’t think you have to worry about coaching Collingwood.”

Don Pyke, Mark Williams and Andrew Voss have also all been associated with the Collingwood track.

“I don’t know if Brad has been spoken to, but I know the club has said they want to talk to Brad Scott,” Wilson said.

“If I had to pick a frontrunner, I would say: [it’s Brad Scott].”
