4-time Hawthorn premiership winning coach Alastair Clarkson believed to have parted ways with Hawks
Hawthorn premiership mastermind Alastair Clarkson’s time is up.
According to a bombshell report in The Age this morning, the four-time flag-winning coach has agreed to part ways earlier than first planned.
Clarkson was due to leave the Hawks at the end of next year as part of a succession plan with current assistant coach Sam Mitchell.
Clarkson was due to address the media in his weekly press conference today, but that has been postponed, further fuelling the speculation.
It’s a sad end for the most successful coach of the modern era, who rebuilt the Hawks from a struggling side to a powerhouse within a few years after arriving in 2005.
He won his first flag as coach in 2008 before a three-peat from 2013-15.
More to come.
