AFL COACHES Association boss Mark Brayshaw is a person of interest for two football clubs undergoing executive change.

Fremantle and North Melbourne are both keen to sound out Brayshaw, who was CEO of Richmond in 2000-2002.

The Dockers exited their chief executive officer Steve Rosich as part of a cleanout (which also claimed coach Ross Lyon), and the North Melbourne board is currently dissecting the findings of a club review.

Roos chairman Ben Buckley and ex-director Glenn Archer shut out their CEO Carl Dilena from the sacking of coach Brad Scott, as well as subsequent high-end approaches to Alastair Clarkson, Adam Simpson and John Longmire. 

Rhyce Shaw was appointed senior coach late last month.

While Fremantle general manager football Peter Bell has been heavily involved in big-picture decisions at the Dockers in the past 12 months and is touted as a future club CEO, he may choose to stay in his current role.

Brayshaw, father of Docker Andrew, Demon Angus and Eagle Hamish, worked in senior marketing roles at Fremantle and Port Adelaide before being appointed Tigers' CEO.

He was appointed AFLCA CEO in 2014.
