Victorian Premier Denis Napthine has sacked another of former leader Ted Baillieu's senior advisers.

Don Coulson, who was Mr Baillieu's Freedom of Information adviser, was fired on Thursday night.

Mr Baillieu resigned as leader last week, midway through his first term as premier.

The decision to axe Mr Coulson follows the resignation of Mr Baillieu's chief of staff, Tony Nutt.

Mr Nutt was referred to the state's Independent Broad-Based Anti-corruption Commission after recorded conversations were released of him offering financial help to disgraced former staffer Tristan Weston.
