Schwab says I'm not quitting

Defiant Hawthorn coach Peter Schwab says he will not quit his job despite the Hawks' spiral into AFL oblivion deepening by the day.

The latest disaster is skipper Shane Crawford's broken arm - which Schwab virtually confirmed would sideline him for the rest of the season.

Crawford snapped his right arm in two places in a meek 86-point defeat by Adelaide which sent the Hawks slumping to the foot of the table.

The Brownlow Medallist will remain in hospital until later this week as he recovers from surgery to insert plates in the arm.

But Schwab said he would not walk away from the Hawks despite inevitable questions about his leadership as the club battles on-field and off-field crises on an almost weekly basis.

"I won't walk. That's not my style, not the way I approach things," Schwab said.

"Those decisions will be made by other people. They won't be made by me.

"Right now, I'm going to keep doing my job to the best of my ability."

Schwab took a similar stance when the Hawks were in mid-season trouble last year, saying he would have to be pushed out of his job rather than fall on his sword.

The Hawks then recovered in a late-season rally which took them to the fringe of the top eight, earning Schwab a new two-year deal.
