Clarko: I’ll be a Hawk for life

Alastair Clarkson is unlikely to consider coaching another club other than Hawthorn.

Clarkson has been in charge of the Hawks since the 2005 season, winning premierships in 2008, 2013 and 2014.

The 46-year-old comes off contract at the end of the 2016 season.

Clarkson is likely to have a range of potential suitors should he want to test his worth on the open market.

But he said he was unlikely to look at any offers from other clubs.

“I don’t think so,” Clarkson told the Nine Network.

“I’m firmly entrenched at our club.

“We’ve got a lot of plans for things in the future and I’m just really happy with where I am.”

When asked how long was too long to be coaching a club, Clarkson suggested he was not contemplating such a question.

“I’m enjoying it as much as I ever have,” he said.

“While we’re in this period of success I want to hang on there for as long as I possibly can.

“As long as I’m enjoying it and the place isn’t sick of me, I’ll hang in there for as long as I can.”

The Hawks, 1-1 through two rounds, face Western Bulldogs at York Park in Launceston on Sunday.
