North Melbourne coach Brad Scott is not concerned about a report that his time at the Kangaroos will end by mutual agreement when the season is over.
The 43-year-old, who began as senior coach in 2010, is contracted until the end of 2020 but Triple M reported on Friday there was a “high likelihood” that the Kangaroos and Scott would amicably part ways before the end of his contract.
Scott said his only focus was Saturday’s match against the Western Bulldogs and external speculation about his coaching future did not worry him.
“The only thing I’ll say about that is I’ve said for my entire tenure here at North Melbourne that my focus is on what’s best for our club – and that hasn’t changed.
“It’s certainly at the forefront of my mind right at the moment that we need to do what’s best for North Melbourne, and what’s best for North right at the moment is the next 24 hours and the Bulldogs.
