Port Adelaide's senior assistant Michael Voss expects more discussions in coming days about becoming Carlton's next head coach.

Voss, who coached Brisbane for five season from 2009, has held preliminary discussions with the Blues.

The 46-year-old was a candidate for Collingwood's coaching job but the Magpies opted for his former Brisbane teammate Craig McRae.

Voss says after initial talks with Carlton, he put the Blues job on the backburner while concentrating on Port's finals campaign.

The Power's season ended on Saturday night with a humiliating 71-point preliminary final loss to the Western Bulldogs.

Asked if he would put his hand up for the Carlton job, Voss told SEN SA radio on Monday: "I would if I am involved but, I have got to be honest with you, I have given it little thought.

"Once the Collingwood coaching job was finalised I have really given not much thought to anything else because there was such a big month that was coming up and such an important set of games that we (Port) had ahead of us.

"But I guess that is what the next few days holds for me, is assess where that is all at."

Voss said he had not formally presented to the Carlton panel who are seeking a replacement for the sacked David Teague.

"I have had a... discussion with them but it hasn't progressed anywhere else as of yet," he said.

"I won't confirm who and how other than that I have had that conversation."

Voss said if he didn't get the Carlton job he would likely remain at Alberton where he is yet to be contracted for next season.

"I would have thought there's a strong chance that I am at Port Adelaide next year, yes," he said.
