Carlton are set to confirm Mick Malthouse as their new coach at a media conference on Tuesday morning.
The Blues confirmed they will hold a conference at 10am at VISY Park where triple premiership coach Malthouse will be unveiled.
The 59-year-old is expected to finish his obligations in the media before taking the reins at Carlton in October.
Malthouse coached West Coast to two premierships in 1992 and '94 before an 11-year stint at the Magpies yielded another flag and three runners-up.
He became linked to the Carlton midway through this season when the Blues were struggling for form and dropped out of the eight.
Former coach Brett Ratten, who was contracted until the end of the 2013 season, was sacked following the Blues' shock loss to Gold Coast in Round 22.
