IT is highly unlikely, but Torquay and East Geelong premiership coach Adam Skrobalak’s name has featured in one betting market to be the replacement for Alan Richardson at St Kilda.

Skrobalak is listed at $34 with Sportsbet to fill the role vacated on Tuesday morning by Richardson alongside Craig Jennings, Scott Burns and Matthew Nicks.

The 40-year-old has been at the Saints since 2015, first in a part-time position, before moving this year to a full-time development role after coaching VFL club Frankston on its return to the competition last year.

Skrobalak took Torquay to the 2006 BFL premiership from an elimination final and East Geelong to its first senior flag in 16 years in 2009.
