Scott is expected to finalise a two-year extension taking him to the end of the 2017 season.
Geelong coach Chris Scott has confirmed that he is close to finalising a contract extension that will keep him at the club until the end of 2017.
Scott is not due to come out of contract until the end of 2015, but both parties are keen to lock-in a deal early to avoid any speculation on his position.
“I’m really committed to Geelong long-term, and every indication I get from the powers that be here is that the feeling’s mutual,” Scott said at Simonds Stadium on Tuesday morning.
“I was never really too worried about the specifics of it. But I think the club is happy and I’m certainly happy with the situation.
“You can work on the assumption that I’m going to be at Geelong for at least the next few years.
“The plan is the end of 2017.”
The Cats will head to the top of the AFL ladder if they defeat Carlton on Friday night, though both Hawthorn and Sydney can leapfrog them again with wins over the weekend.
