Recently retired Blue Andrew Walker will be staying at Carlton next season.

The 202-game veteran, who retired in the latter stages of the 2016 season, will take up the role of development and integration coach.

Carlton head of football Andrew McKay said the club was thrilled to have someone of Walker's calibre stay at the club.

"We're delighted Andrew will continue his career at Carlton as a development and integration coach – his experience and knowledge of the game will be invaluable for our young players," McKay said.

"Andrew's core responsibilities will involve assisting the first-year players' transition into the AFL system, which is a really important process, as well as working alongside fellow development coaches, Mathew Capuano and Josh Fraser.

"He was a key part of the leadership group this season so Andrew’s ability drive and set high standards at the club will be really beneficial."
