It's amazing that Chris Scott has never won coach of the year award especially given how successful he's been over his coaching career.

His team was written off at the start of the year and expected to miss the top 8, but Scott has reinvented the wheel this year with his coaching and anyone who has watched us this year and watched us last year can see there is a huge difference in the way we play.

For these reasons, he has to be the frontrunner for the coach of the year award right now.

Yeh as someone else has mentioned, Clarkson is somehow still yet to win one so I wouldn't be fiddling yourself over Scott not having one yet
Clarkson's a September magician though not a year magician. Over the course of a season itself he's never once produced a dominant display. I actually do remember a 3 week stint of intense form when they destroyed Carlton. But never saw that over a long period or even during finals.

Shades of the Lions under Lethal, thats it, win one, then another, then another ..... coach of the year is a nice gesture, but a nothing award, compared to lifting the cup.

Not how it works. WC were predicted bottom 4 and some said the spoon, they won the flag and Simpson didn't get it. Clarkson didn't win one through all his years. It's more likely going to Lyon for getting Freo into contention.

Thank you for giving the Bigfooty members a really big chortle of a belly laugh on this low key Thursday night.

I think you'll find that the coach of the year award will go to someone that took his team from outside of the 8..... to playing finals this current year. So look for Chris Fagan to win COTY in 2019 if Brisbane makes the final 8.

As Xtreme said, if the ladder stays roughly as it is, Fagan will win it without a doubt. Beveridge won it due to taking the Dogs from 14th in 2014 to 6th in 2015, so if Fagan takes the Lions from last season into the finals this season he will win it.

Scott has done brilliantly thus far though and would have to be second only to Fagan atm.

Using this logic you'd have to take Ross Lyon into consideration as well, given that Fremantle could play finals this year after finishing bottom 6 the last 3 years.

Bet Ross would happily acknowledge the master, who has 4 thingies to his name, numero uno.

Heard Clarko was doing a bit of moonlighting over the weekend & coached a winner in the amo's.

Success at most other clubs is based on winning finals/flags not just having great home and away seasons, probably why Hardwick won coty in 2017 but not 2018 where overall we did a lot better just not when it counted.
