CRICKET: WICB says head coach not leaving for UK club
2013-10-17 07:02:28 | (0 Comments)
The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) has denied reports that Ottis Gibson, West Indies' head coach, is in contention to take over at Glamorgan County Cricket Club in England.
Gibson has been in his current role since 2010 and signed a three-year contract extension earlier this year, after interest from another county in Warwickshire.
Glamorgan are believed to have carried out a final round of interviews on Tuesday as they seek to appoint a successor to Matthew Mott, who is returning to Australia.
However, the West Indies board rejected suggestions, initially reported by the BBC that Gibson could return to the county he played for in the 1990s.
A spokesman from the WICB says Gibson is not aware of the interest from Gamorgan.
Gibson oversaw West Indies' victorious World Twenty20 campaign in 2012 and the team has won its last six Tests in a row - its best run since 1988.
Their next assignment is in India, where West Indies will play two Tests - including Sachin Tendulkar's farewell in Mumbai - and three One-Day Internationals next month.
