Carlton axe another senior AFLW figure

Two days after sacking their AFLW coach, Carlton have axed another senior figure in the club's women's football program.

The Blues have told their general manager of women's football Brett Munro he will not be offered a new contract following a scathing review into the club's AFLW program.

Coach Daniel Harford was sacked on Tuesday after the Blues finished 14th with just two wins last season.

Munro will also move on after a review cited a lack of leadership and clarity in the women's program.

"These decisions are never easy," Carlton president Luke Sayers said in a statement on Thursday.

"However key findings in the review made it apparent that a change was required in relation to the leadership within our AFLW program."

The review review found there were key barriers to success relating to systems, culture, coaching structures and insufficient leadership to support and drive professionalism and elite behaviours.

Confusion with the game plan and a lack of alignment and consistency with its implementation were among the findings, which found an "undisputed need" for the senior coach position to be full-time.

Harford also works in radio and was unable to commit to a permanent role with Carlton.
