Breaking News: " "It would be great to go back - Hawthorn is my football home," says the former Carlton manager who wants to return to top coaching

AFLW coach Daniel Harford, who used to work for Carlton, has said he wants to “have another crack” at coaching and would “certainly have a chat” with Hawthorn as they look for a new head coach.

The Hawks are one of four AFLW teams that are looking for new trainers before the 2024 season. The other three are Collingwood, West Coast, and the Western Bulldogs.

Bec Goddard, Hawthorn’s premiership-winning coach, quit this week. The Waverley club now needs to find a new coach to replace Goddard, who had been there for two years.

Michael Prior and Steve Symonds both quit the Eagles and Magpies in the off-season after losing a lot of games. Nathan Burke was fired by the Bulldogs after only getting one win in 2023.

“People have done that a lot in all levels of football in the last 20 years, so I’d love to give it a try.”

After coming in 14th place in season seven of the AFLW, Harford quit the Blues. She left Princes Park after taking a close look at the club’s women’s program.
The guy who used to play for Hawthorn and Carlton might be a great choice for his other old team, the Hawks, who are looking at Harford as a possible replacement for Goddard.

Harford said that he would love the chance to talk to the sports club that helped him get started.

 

“Hawthorn is where I play football, so if the chance came up, I would definitely talk to the Hawks about that,” he said.

“The people in my family like Hawthorn. After going to Hawthorn, I’ve done everything I’ve done in my working life.

“It would be great to go back and coach if that were possible.”

Harford was in charge of the Blues for 45 games, from 2019 to 2022. They won 22, lost 21, and tied twice.
