OUTGOING Carlton president Mark LoGiudice will complete his handover to Luke Sayers this week as the club braces for further change as a result of the review into its football department.
The Blues will miss the finals for an eighth-straight season, with coach David Teague, football manager Brad Lloyd and high performance boss Andrew Russell all under the microscope.
The club's list management team also faces scrutiny after an expensive off-season recruiting drive at the end of last year.
The findings of the review - commissioned by Sayers and conducted by Geoff Walsh, Matthew Pavlich and Graham Lowe - were handed to the Carlton board last week for consideration.
Teague said last week he expects the board to give him a decision on his coaching future after the Blues' final match of the season against GWS.
The 40-year-old remains adamant he is the right man to take Carlton forward despite a 95-point thrashing from Port Adelaide on Saturday killing off their finals hopes.
Teague's future has been the subject of widespread speculation for weeks and there is also uncertainty over the playing future of champion goal sneak Eddie Betts, who is expected to announce his retirement.
LoGiudice, who has been a Carlton board member for 12 years and president for the last eight, announced in April he would step down this year.
He listed the club's record membership, establishment of a Reconciliation Action Plan and introduction of a women's team among the most significant aspects of his tenure, as well as the Blues becoming debt-free for the first time since 1996.

"Despite these many achievements, the key objective and responsibility remains to deliver improvement in our on-field performances each year," LoGiudice wrote in a letter to members on Monday.
"To this point, the club has undertaken a review of the football department with the key focus on our AFL team.
"The independent, external panel last week provided an update to incoming president Luke Sayers and the board.
"This update was part of the review process which remains ongoing and any further updates will be communicated to members in due course."
Former Fremantle and St Kilda coach Ross Lyon looms as a possible replacement for Teague, with the 54-year-old on Sunday giving a strong indication he is keen to return to coaching.
"AFL coaching is a passion," Lyon said on Triple M.
"I never found it tortuous or a job and it does stimulate you thinking that you've got something to offer and if an opportunity presented maybe you look.
"To put a team around you and commit to something and try to build something special is a wonderful feeling."
