"A highly respected coach in the AFL Women’s competition has left Carlton and the club is tying itself in knots over the circumstances surrounding her departure.
The woman exited her position at the Blues after a personal issue with a high profile AFLW player.

It’s a case of ‘she said, she said’ with clear differences between the camps about how her departure came about.

The messy situation has come at a bad time for the Blues as it attempts to start afresh after the recent upheaval of its men’s outfit that saw the club sack its coach and CEO.

The AFL is aware of the situation, with Paul Hamilton looking into it, in consultation with the League’s Human Resources department.

The coach is well considered in the AFL’s ranks and her reputation is sound.

Those close to her fear the personal situation will cause her profile in football circles to be unfairly tarnished.

Carlton refused to comment on the matter, saying it wanted to protect the wellbeing of those involved.

The AFL also refused to respond to questions.

The woman, who also had a career as a footballer herself, looks to have since secured a role with the men’s under 18s NAB League.

A spokesman for her was also tight-lipped about what really unfolded.

We hope for everyone’s sake the parties can both move forward."
