Will Mark Williams Be The New Essendon Coach?

Ladbrokes.com.au has a special market on offer to AFL punters, open specifically for who will take over as the new Essendon coach for the 2011 AFL Season.

The hot favourite is former Port Adelaide coach Mark Williams at $1.75 with Ladbrokes.com.au. He has recently expressed interest, claiming he can already see potential within the side.

The Bombers’ development coach is another favourite, sitting close in the early odds at $2 with Ladbrokes.com.au.  The former Collingwood defender also has a lot of speculation surrounding him regarding the vacant spot as Port Adelaide coach.

Fox Sports commentator James Hird is third favourite for the role at $10 with Ladbrokes.com.au. The former Bombers skipper has already ruled himself out of the running, expressing concern over the speed in which the sacking incident occurred.

The club may have sacked Matthew Knights speedily, but Essendon have announced they will take their time in picking the next coach, perhaps up to a month.

Essendon lost their round 22 fixture against the Western Bulldogs, which finished off a fruitless season. Within 12 hours of the result, Knights had lost his job.

So if you think you can pick who will pick up the reins at Essendon, then don’t waste a minute. Head straight to Ladbrokes.com.au for the best odds and markets so you will know you are accessing the best offers online.
