Under-fire Carlton coach David Teague has arrived for a meeting set to determine his fate after a broader meeting, scheduled for all players and staff, was cancelled.

Teague arrived at Ikon Park this morning for a meeting that is also understood to include fitness boss Andrew Russell and football boss Brad Lloyd.

It had been widely expected that Teague would be sacked today, however a letter sent to the members by club president Luke Sayers adjusted those expectations, rejecting calls for a decision to be made either way before a thorough process was allowed to play out.

"The club will take the necessary time required to absorb this review," Sayers wrote.

"Any outcomes will be made on the timeframe that is in the best interest of the club, not based on external expectations or pressure.

"As always, I remain committed to continue being open and transparent with our members and supporters regarding any outcomes and decisions that will arise out of this review, including the summarised findings, and as such, once this process is complete, our members will be the first to know."
