Experienced assistant coach John Barker has resigned from Carlton but is set to leave the club sooner than he anticipated.
Barker, who is currently serving as the Blues’ stoppages coach in his 11th season at the club, offered his resignation to football boss Brad Lloyd on Monday, citing personal reasons.
A club source has told The Age Barker wanted to remain with the team until the end of the season, but the club’s preference was for him to leave immediately.
Turned 28 about a week ago. As per PC'S comment, it is a click bait article. It won't happen, but I think he would still be a very good pick up for most clubs, if they could afford him. I don't see him being a major part of the next finals push at the Hawks, as realistically they need a few years to rebuild, he'll be in his 30's by then, and probably on the decline, so he should be looking elsewhere if he can get a good deal for all involved.
