Brett Ratten

A name that has constantly been mentioned when a vacant job opens within the league. A return to a head coaching role seems inevitable for Ratten, who has won three premierships as an assistant to Alistair Clarkson at Hawthorn.

Currently working under Alan Richardson at St Kilda, Ratten has plied his trade as a worthy No.2, and will be keen for a second gig as an AFL coach.

The ex-Carlton coach will see a return to the helm of an AFL side as a chance at redemption, after ending his tenure with the Blues in 2012 with a record of 60 wins, 59 losses and one draw over his six years with the club.

Ratten will sit high in North Melbourne’s search to replace Brad Scott, as the board have the heavy task of signing a new coach for the first time in a decade. The Roos would have great interest in Ratten’s signature, with the feelings likely to be mutual.
