North Melbourne remain interested in Hawthorn super coach Alastair Clarkson, reports Triple M’s Tom Browne.

Browne reported yesterday that the Kangaroos’ senior coaching search is down to a race of two – David Noble and Robert Harvey – with Noble firming for the position.

Speaking on Triple M’s The Hot Breakfast this morning, he believes the club is still enquiring about Clarkson.

“I’m told reliably last night that North has sounded out and is still interested in Alastair Clarkson,” Browne said.

“It’s not to suggest that Clarko would do the job, but I’m told in the background they are at least enquiring.

“It’s interesting because of Hawthorn’s window, it’s going to take, three, four, five six, seven years to rebuild Hawthorn. Clarko seems fully committed to that, but you may as well ask him.”

Clarkson made 93 senior appearances for North Melbourne between 1987 and 1995.

He has coached Hawthorn for 368 games since 2005, winning four premierships to go down as one one of the most successful coaches of all time.

The 52-year old is contracted at the Hawks until the end of 2022.
