Global look for WI coach
The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) yesterday opened its innings in a global search for an experienced and highly qualified head coach to replace Barbadian Ottis Gibson.
A release from the regional cricket body outlined specific qualifications which the individual they are seeking to fill the vacant position must have.
The WICB didn’t give a timeline for the appointment of the new person but made it clear that anyone applying for the job must have a proven track record as a world-class coach with sound practical experience in developing elite players and teams and must have at least five years’ experience as a head coach.
“These are just some of the attributes that candidates for head coach of the West Indies team will need to possess to be considered for the position,” the statement said.
The position became vacant following the sudden departure of Gibson on the eve of the home series against Bangladesh in August with more than a year remaining on his contract.
