Bolton looks to be favourite for Crows coach role

HAWTHORN assistant coach Brendon Bolton could get the chance to improve his unbeaten record at senior level after having a second interview for the top job at the Adelaide Crows.

Bolton (pictured) coached five senior games for the 2014 premiers this season when head coach Alastair Clarkson was hospitalised in late May after being diagnosed with the potentially debilitating Guillane-Barre syndrome.

The Hawks won all five of those games. The former North Hobart captain-coach met with the Crows board for his first interview on Wednesday.

Bolton was one of three candidates on the shortlist for the Adelaide job, made vacant last month when Brenton Sanderson was sacked after three seasons in charge, and with two years still to run on his contract.

The other two in the running are Port Adelaide assistant Phil Walsh and ex-Hawthorn premiership player and now Sydney assistant Stewart Dew.
