Former Cape Cobras coach Richard Pybus will reportedly be named new West Indies head coach soon.
Pybus coached the Cobras from 2010 to 2012 before resigning in controversial circumstances.
‘There are a range of issues to do with the chief executive and the franchise that have undermined me as head coach and made my continued position untenable,’ he said at the time.
He is currently employed as the West Indies’ high performance director – a position he held from 2013 to 2016, too.
‘It would be great to ask Cricket West Indies president Dave Cameron about this appointment and when was this position advertised,’ former West Indies batsman wrote on social media when Pybus was reappointed.
Ex-West Indies captain Darren Sammy tweeted: ‘Lies lies lies… Must be fake news. Well I’m still hoping that nightmare is not true #fakenews he’s not coming back at CWI.’
Pybus also previously coached Pakistan, Bangladesh, Border and the Titans.
Former Proteas wicketkeeper-batsman Nic Pothas has been the West Indies’ interim coach since Australian Stuart Law’s resignation earlier this year.
