Brad Scott 'ideal successor' for Nathan Buckley

Speaking on Radio 3AW's Sportsday, Caroline Wilson said the North Melbourne coach looked an ideal successor.

“I just think Brad Scott and Collingwood would be a wonderful fit,” Caroline Wilson said on 3AW.

“I think he’s done a fantastic job at the Kangaroos.”

Caro said Buckley wasn’t the only coach in trouble, with Rodney Eade also likely to lose his job on the Gold Coast.
