Fo­cus on Hink­ley

Geelong Advertiser - - SPORT -

THE fu­ture of Port Ade­laide coach Ken Hink­ley should be­come clearer to­day as Gold Coast con­tin­ues to hover.

De­spite Port’s de­mand on Fri­day that the Suns stop try­ing to poach Hink­ley, the ex­pan­sion club re­mains a cru­cial fac­tor.

Chan­nel 9’s Footy Show re­ported yes­ter­day that Syd­ney as­sis­tant Stu­art Dew, a can­di­date for the Suns job, post­poned his in­ter­view with the club. He ap­par­ently wants to see what hap­pens at Power but is also un­der­stood to re­main a Gold Coast can­di­date.

Hink­ley’s reg­u­lar Mon­day in­ter­view on 5AA will at­tract plenty of in­ter­est.

He has not spo­ken at length pub­licly since his team’s elim­i­na­tion fi­nal loss to West Coast.

Hink­ley, Port’s coach since 2013, has a year left on his con­tract and Power pres­i­dent David Koch said last week the club would soon have talks with him about ex­tend­ing it.

The spec­u­la­tion is that Gold Coast is pre­pared to offer Hink­ley a five-year deal.
