WEST Coast chief executive Trevor Nisbett won't seek a contract extension beyond next year but expects Adam Simpson to remain as coach.

Both men have come under increasing pressure during a horror season in which the last-placed Eagles appear destined to be handed the second wooden spoon in club history.

Nisbett is contracted for 2024 but conceded he might not reach the end of the deal.

"My expectation is that I will be here. Whether it's all of '24 or part of '24, only time will tell," Nisbett told SEN radio.

"But certainly I haven't asked for an extension and I won't be asking for an extension of contract.

"The steps for us are to sit down as a board at the end of the year and work through what's in the best interests of the football club.

"That will happen pretty quickly I would think post-season."

Simpson coached West Coast to a premiership in 2018 but has now overseen a dire run of just four wins in 42 games, dating back to 2021.

"It's been a really difficult year for Adam," Nisbett said.

"We've introduced so many teenagers into our playing group, along with a couple of 20-year-olds, and they're starting to show glimpses of form on a consistent basis.

"Some of our senior players are playing reasonably good footy, albeit we've still only won the two games and that's inadequate for what we're after.

"But having said that, it has been a really difficult set of circumstances that Adam's been working under for two seasons with so many injuries."

Despite their on-field woes, West Coast remain a powerful club off the field.

The Eagles boast more than 100,000 members and the job as Nisbett's successor will be highly sought after.

Nisbett, who has been with West Coast in various roles for more than 30 years, was appointed chief executive in 1999.

"We've got some long-term (staff) here who have done a really good job and there's likely to be one or two put their hand up," Nisbett said.

"Then if the club wants to they'll look externally and that will be up to the board."
