Tigers in talks to renew Hardwick’s contract

By Jake Niall

Richmond has started early talks with Damien Hardwick and his management about renewing the triple premiership coach’s contract, which expires at the end of this season.

Richmond chief executive Brendon Gale confirmed that the Tigers had been in discussions with Hardwick and his manager since the post-season of last year, expressing confidence that a new deal would be struck.

“We’ve been talking for a few months since post-season,” said Gale. “And I’m confident that will be resolved in due course. “He’s been a very strong coach for our football club.”

Assuming there is no hiccup, Richmond plans to secure Hardwick - who would be highly appealing to some rival clubs in the market for a coach - on a multi-year deal.

Hardwick accepted less than his prospective market value when he signed a three-year contract extension in 2018. Industry sources say he is not remunerated as well as his close friend and Hawthorn coach Alastair Clarkson and, like other senior coaches, his ability to command a massive salary has been hurt by the reduction in the soft cap on football department spending.

...

Hardwick’s expected new deal would extend his tenure to well beyond a decade. The former Essendon and Port Adelaide premiership player and Hawthorn assistant coach took over at the Tigers in 2010, when they were down the ladder and early in a rebuild, during a period of drafts compromised by the competition’s expansion.
