With the imminent departure of midfield coach Josh Francou at the completion of the 2021 season, Port Adelaide assistant coach and former Brisbane Lions champion Michael Voss has had his name being thrown around as a potential replacement for the vacant role under Gold Coast coach Stuart Dew for next season, according to Mitch Cleary of AFL.com.au.
Voss, 46, is out-of-contract at the end of this year and is a candidate to become Collingwood's next head coach after expressing his desire to be a head coach and meeting with the club about the vacant role.
But, Gold Coast have emerged as another potential destination should his desire of being a head coach next year not be fulfilled.
Voss was set to be the inaugural Suns coach ahead of the club being formed in 2009, but was offered to take on the role as Brisbane Lions coach in 2009, replacing his former premiership coach, Leigh Matthews.
Should Voss opt to join the Suns, it would only be as an assistant, with Dew still contracted at the club until the end of 2022.
A role in the media is also a possibility if none of Voss' coaching intentions come to fruition, with the Brisbane champion showing his skills in broadcast as an expert analyst with Channel Seven last year.
Voss was senior coach of the Lions between 2009-2013, managing a 42-1-64 record across his 107 matches in the coaches box - a win rate of 39.72%.
