THE WEST INDIES cricket team will have to start looking for a full-time deputy to head coach Ottis Gibson. Former assistant coach Toby Radford, who was unavailable for next month’s two-Test series in India was on Monday named as Glamorgan’s new head coach and is set to begin duties on November 1. Former Jamaica wicket-keeper Andre Coley has already been named as Gibson’s assistant for the tour of India. But West Indies Cricket Board’s communications manager Imran Khan told NATION SPORT yesterday that the board will make a decision on the position for the subsequent tour to New Zealand. Coley, who is attached to the Barbados-based Sagicor West Indies High Performance Centre (HPC), was also an assistant coach, along with Radford, during the Champions Trophy in England, earlier this year. The West Indies team left for Florida on Sunday for a team building camp and Coley, who has just returned to Barbados following the HPC’s short tour to Jamaica, is expected to join the squad later this week.   Radford moved to the Caribbean in 2010 to take up a post with the HPC, but he was later appointed batting coach after former West Indies opener Desmond Haynes had a short stint as batting consultant.
