Not a lot of senior coaching turnover this year so who is under the pump next year to keep their job?

my pick is Goodwin

accidently added Ken twice

Leon Cameron I think, if they don’t rebound and at least make finals than surely he’s in big trouble.

Cameron- so much talent, nothing to show for it. Best result an 89 point grand final walloping

Goodwin- massive underachievers the last 2 years. Last few rounds of this season, failed to grab finals spot, losing to lowly teams. Finals or bust.

Buckley- Collingwood is a powerhouse club. Demands success. So close in 18. 19 would've given Richmond a real shake except lost that tight prelim. Crucial Moments make all the difference to the perception of a coaches legacy (just ask Ross Lyon). Coll had tougher run with injuries over last few years than other contenders too. Excuses aside, the pressure is on. The time is now.

1. Simon Goodwin - finals or bust
2. Leon Cameron - the same
3. Nathan Buckley - really needs to make finals, otherwise I think he'd be gone if not a favourite son. Collingwood more patient with him than GWS or Melbourne with their own

Contracts will be broken I expect. Melbourne fans more pressure than GWS fans on their own side.

Scott, Hinkley, Bevo will have the extra years blessing.

On a slight tangent here

Was 2020 the most experienced coaching group ever?

We had 7 premiership coaches. And several very experienced non-premiership coaches.

Seems like coaches aren't getting the chop as quickly as they were 10 or 15 years ago

I think Cameron and Goodwin have to make at least the finals, and arguably need to win one.

Buckley could be in trouble if Collingwood misses the finals but he's basically teflon there so I think he's fine.

This season gives Hinkley some blessing, whereas I don't see Beveridge going unless the Dogs really implode. Scott is probably safe unless something really strange happens.

Could Dew and Longmire be in danger if Gold Coast or Sydney really implodes?

Leon Cameron should have been sacked 5 years ago. If GWS had a halfway decent coach they could have won a flag in that time period.

Buckley should be under pressure too, showing he has the people skills of an angry brown snake.

I actually feel Cameron will get a small reprieve this year, with the readily available "excuse" of player exodus / list turnover and a mini-rebuild

I voted for Goodwin - a third year of mediocrity could see him in big trouble.

Hinkley, Scott, Bevo and Dew I think are, absolute disaster aside, reasonably safe.

Nicks could be in trouble if he goes 0-13 again.

Both those clubs understand where they are with their lists, expect both to move up a bit this year, both coaches seem well respected.

Cameron and Goodwin have to do something this year, both had bad 2020's. Buckley coach for life as long as Eddie is there

Certainly more appreciation for experience and even those who have failed before in the top job are getting weond chances.

Simon Goodwin is the name in the firing line.....

Crows have history sacking coaches if they don't make finals for 2 years in a row.
