The GOLD COAST SUNS are reportedly on the verge of confirming that Rodney Eade will be their new AFL coach.
Details have to be finalised and no announcement is expected until later this week.
Eade coached Sydney to the 1996 grand final and also led the Western Bulldogs to three-straight preliminary finals from 2008-10.

He has been at Collingwood since 2011 and last year became their football director.
The Suns met with Eade yesterday and he reportedly will join them on a three-year deal – after sacking their foundation coach – Guy McKenna on October 1.
