St Kilda coach Brett Ratten says talks are ongoing over a new deal with the club and he is keeping calm about the situation.
Saints are priced at 17/1 to win the 2022 AFL grand final and are going well so far after picking up seven wins to take them up to fifth place on the ladder.
With St Kilda in such form it is no surprise that Ratten is keeping cool. This despite the fact that Alastair Clarkson will be looking to get back into coaching in 2023.
Following the departure of Leon Cameron from GWS there is also talk of a coaching merry-go-round. But Ratten seems safe in his current job.
"I hope I do stay there but we'll work through that," Ratten told Fox Footy. "The length (of a new deal) will be worked out and the numbers will be worked out. But we're just chatting at the moment and going through that.
"I'm very relaxed. I'm not worried about it (the contract). I've been too worried about North Melbourne this week, so let's worry about North Melbourne and that will take care of itself."
St Kilda last won the premiership way back in 1966 and Ratten is hoping to end that drought sooner rather than later.
"What we're trying to build is a team that's working for each other and the environment is just as important as what happens out on the field," Ratten added.
"Trying to create that is really important and we've got some really good people at our football club. It's not just the coach, it's the people around you that make it as well."
