A new deal for Geelong coach Chris Scott is "sorted", according to Cats CEO Steve Hocking.

Coming out of contract at the end of 2022, speculation has swirled about the 45-year-old's future at Kardinia Park but recent reports suggest the premiership coach has inked a new deal taking him through to the end of 2025.

Speaking to K rock Football ahead of Friday night's match against Brisbane, Hocking confirmed that a new deal for the long-serving coach was nearly final.

“Details are all sorted,” Hocking said.

“It’ll be done pretty much any week now – any day.

“Everything’s agreed, and we’re really pleased about that.”

Scott, who took the reins at Geelong in 2011, coached the club to a premiership win in that same year and to a grand final appearance in 2020, but has shared in his fair share of finals heartbreak, losing five preliminary finals during his time in charge.

The start of 2022 though has been bright for the club, rounding out the first month of the season with a 3-1 tally.

Hocking also spoke about changes within the club's footy department that were made ahead of the 2022 season, detailing the benefit of including ex-players in the new look program.

"There was 16 changes to the football program and a lot of us are focused on just the return of those former players," Hocking said.

"A number of those guys have been away in other programs, guys like James Kelly and Matthew Egan have got great experience.

"It's really good to bring that knowledge into the club."

Eddie Betts was another high profile addition to the Cats over the summer, joining the club as a development coach following his retirement.

The Cats, and Hocking, have remained tight lipped on the details surrounding Scott's new deal, expected to be revealed as the season unfolds.

On field, the Cats face their next challenge in the form of Hawthorn in their traditional Easter Monday clash, ten days after their 10-point win over Brisbane.
