The day started with news of a meeting between Carlton’s president Mark LoGiudice and football boss Brad Lloyd, and ended with Brendon Bolton’s sacking confirmed at a press conference at Ikon Park.
In summary, the Blues said a poor win-loss record meant they had to act to remove Bolton, though they thanked him for his time at the helm and said he was not solely to blame.
Bolton was in his fourth year as senior coach, having start in 2016, after Mick Malthouse was sacked in 2015.
Assistant coach David Teague will take over as interim coach. Teague, a former Carlton best and fairest winner, has been forward line coach until now.
