Adelaide board member and club legend Mark Ricciuto says the Crows do not have a replacement coach in waiting following the sensational sacking of Brenton Sanderson on Wednesday.
Speaking to Triple M Radio, Ricciuto said the club definitely have not signed a replacement.
“I can guarantee we haven’t done that,” Ricciuto said.
“You don’t go looking at coaches – well some people do go behind your current coaches back and start talking to people – some people choose to do things like that. We haven’t.”
Ricciuto said the decision to part ways with Sanderson was tough, but one that was required.
“Basically we spoke to all the key people that you need to speak to, that the coach has got to have relationships (with) if it’s going to be a successful football club,” he said.
“The players were one of those groups and obviously formed part of the reason why he is not there from next year onwards.
“I guarantee anyone listening out there that I’m on the board for the right reasons and I want to make this football club as good as it can be as quick as it can be.”
