‘Dons to meet on James Hird’s coaching future

· Hird to keep Bombers’ job, says Lloyd

Essendon’s board will meet on Wednesday to discuss the future of suspended coach James Hird.

His future at the AFL club is uncertain following a television interview with his wife Tania that was aired last week.

She again blasted the AFL over its handling of Essendon’s supplements scandal and said her husband was made a scapegoat.

Club chairman Paul Little made it clear on Friday that Essendon are unhappy about her comments.

“Essendon wish to advise the matter relating to James Hird has been referred to a board meeting on Wednesday,” the club said in a short statement.

Hird is serving a 12-month suspension until late August, but Essendon have contracted him until the end of the 2016 season.

He is currently overseas on a study trip.
