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.

    I agree with Farmboy. Giv Fev another go. He may be a richard cranium but can he kick goals. When the pies release Cloak to Carlton they should offer Fev a performance based contract. Bucks wouldn't take any excrement from him and he could be a Collingwood Coleman medalist.

    Could this possibly happen?????? Bet not one AFL supporter had any idea that this would happen. Straight from left field. NOT.

    maybe give FEV another go - with his recent history and a formidable coach he might be the answer, at least in the short term

    Wonderful coach who will do his utmost for Carlton. Depends on the "cattle" they can muster though and will take time to build. I wish him all the best, but am sorry it is Carlton whose supporters have been so critical of him during his term at Collingwood. Humble PIE required at the dinner table.

    Malthouse is a thievin' dog..he wont find any more success at Carlton than what Ratts did...It wasnt coaching that sinked the Blues, it's the list...Carlton has never fully recovered from shipping off Fevs..
