West Coast Eagles Chairman Alan Cransberg says Peter Sumich's experience at Fremantle adds to his credentials as a potential coach of the Eagles.

West Coast has begun the search for a new coach after John Worsfold announced his resignation.

Sumich has a long history at the Eagles as a player and assistant coach, and has spent the last two years at the Dockers as an assistant.

He is considered one of the leading candidate for the West Coast job, with one betting agency installing him as favourite ahead of Eagles assistant Scott Burns.

Cransberg says the board is yet to discuss potential candidates but will put together a sub committee to begin the process.

"I'll personally be on that, our Vice-Chairman will be on that, Trevor will be on that, a couple of other people will be on that, we haven't signed that off, we'll sign that off next week and get on with it," he said.

"I think it's important to note we will look for the experience that coaches have, the fact that Sumich has been to another club I think adds to his resume, but we have not discussed any names in any way shape or form."
