Adem Yze has emerged as the favourite for the vacant GWS coaching job, but is set to remain at Melbourne for the remainder of their 2022 campaign, per reports from 7 News' Mitch Cleary.

Yze has worked as an assistant coach at the Demons since 2000 and has been heavily touted as a coach in waiting, now looking like the next to take the top job at the Giants after the departure of Leon Cameron earlier in the year.

With the Demons currently sitting second on the ladder and looking towards September to defend their 2021 premiership, Yze has reportedly committed to remaining at the club throughout their finals campaign, even if he does sign with the Giants in the coming weeks.

"Yze is now the leading contender for the vacant Giants job," Cleary reported on Saturday night.

"If he gets that job there's every chance he is appointed in the bye week or the first week of finals.

"Adem Yze has committed that if he gets that job he will stay right through their (Melbourne's) September.

"So there's a scenario where we might see him Giants coach but also coaching with the Demons for another three or four weeks after he potentially gets appointed."

Cleary reported that a call on the job could be made in the coming weeks, with the vacant North role also reportedly set to be snapped up too.

Four-time premiership coach Alastair Clarkson has reportedly been offered a long term deal to head to Arden Street, with a call on his future expected soon.
