Carlton's search to find the successor to David Teague continues to take shape, with the Blues' interview processes set to get underway.

The Blues have seen high-profile candidates in Alastair Clarkson and Ross Lyon turn their back on the vacancy, leaving president Luke Sayers with a field dominated by untried coaches.

That hasn't left the Blues without strong names in the race for the senior coaching role however, with a trio of assistant coaches set to be interviewed at Ikon Park.

According to 7 News' Tom Browne, Essendon assistant Daniel Giansiracusa, former Brisbane senior coach Michael Voss and Tigers assistant Adam Kingsley are all believed to be in the running for the Blues job.

Giansiracusa has emerged as a frontrunner for the Carlton job, however Sayers and the Blues' coaching search sub-committee are set to utilise a 30-45 day process to ensure the best candidate is selected to be their next senior coach.

The former Bulldogs forward joined the Bombers at the end of last season, making a switch from Whitten Oval.

Giansiracusa's time under Ben Rutten has seen his stocks rise as the Bombers landed a top-eight finish in 2021.

Both Voss and Kingsley were understood to have held discussions with Collingwood for their recently-vacant senior coaching role, however, neither were favoured over Hawks assistant Craig McRae.

Voss recently revealed that preliminary talks with the Blues had begun, with the Power assistant's contract ending this year.

Brothers Chris and Brad Scott have also been linked to the Blues job, although they are both likely to remain at Geelong and AFL House respectively next year.

2022 will be the Cats coach's final year of his current contract, while Brad is tipped to be the leading name to land the AFL's football operations manager position.
