When Western Bulldogs President Peter Gordon was on Triple M's The Hot Breakfast recently he put it to Luke Darcy to come on to the Bulldogs' board to pick the new coach.
"Initially my reaction was no, mainly for the reason that I enjoy being independent," Luke Darcy said on Triple M's The Hot Breakfast.
"A lot of people who are involved are very close friends of mine, this does mean a lot to me, I want to see this place in the best possible shape.
"So I am going to be part of the committee, John Worsfold is going to be part of the committee as well.
"We have our first meeting this afternoon to try and pick the next coach."
