Andrew Dillon to see out season as AFL footy boss as Saints' Ameet Bains emerges as candidate Former St Kilda CEO Michael Nettlefold, who hired Bains, has praised his professionalism and believes he has what it takes to run the league's football department.
Bains was originally recommended to Nettlefold by then AFL football operations boss Adrian Anderson. "I would have thought someone like Ameet may be very qualified for that role," Nettlefold told Fairfax Media."He's a lawyer by training; he's got good depth in football generally. He's played a lot of amateur football with the OMs (Old Melburnians), he has a good football coach outlet boots pedigree. Bains was promoted to chief operating officer in July 2014 under a revamp by new CEO Matt Finnis. In his new role, Bains oversees player contracts, list management decisions, fixturing and integrity among other crucial matters. "He's well placed to coachfactory online do a number of senior roles within the industry and coach outlet official site maybe at the AFL if that was something he wanted to pursue," Nettlefold said. The AFL on Monday began its search for Lethlean's replacement, with head legal counsel Dillon filling in on an interim basis.

League chief Gillon McLachlan, visibly devastated by the events that led to him accepting the resignations of two key figures in his executive, now faces the brutal task of finding a candidate with enough football experience and nous to navigate the football operations role.

St Kilda's Baines and Geelong's Steve Hocking have already emerged as leading candidates with superb resumes, but there will be a plethora of other people who will be looked at.
