The 32-year-old has played five out of the Power’s six games this season, but was rested by Ken Hinkley for his side’s round three clash against North Melbourne.
According to Channel Seven, Cornes has been offered a role at the South Australian Metropolitan Fire Service.
Cornes underwent physical testing last month before completing his entrance exam on April 20.
He made his debut for Port Adelaide in 2001 after being drafted at pick no.20 in the 2000 AFL Draft.
Cornes played alongside his brother Chad for a majority of his career before Chad moved to the Greater Western Sydney Giants in 2011.
Their father, Graham, was the Adelaide Crows’ inaugural coach.
Cornes is likely to play his 299th game for the Power against the Brisbane Lions at the Gabba on Sunday, before becoming the first player in the club’s history to reach the 300-game milestone in round eight against the Tigers.
