Richard Pybus - Pakistan's first ever foreign coach has been named the new West Indie's director of cricket. Pybus had three stints as coach for Pakistan in 1999, 2001 and 2003. Pybus would later return to international coaching in 2012 leading Bangladesh for 5 months before quitting over contract issues. Unlike quite a few coaches today Pybus never played international cricket.
ST. JOHN'S ( Antigua and Barbuda): Former Pakistan coach Richard Pybus was on Thursday named as director of cricket with the West Indies Cricket Board on a three-year deal.
Pybus, 49, coached Pakistan from 1999 to 2003 and also led the Titans and Cobras to a total of nine titles in South Africa.
"I am delighted and honoured to accept this key role in West Indies Cricket and to help build on the progress that has been made in recent years," said Englishman Pybus.
"I am particularly looking forward to working with the West Indies teams, the First Class sides, the High Performance Program and the educational structures to ensure a rigorous, competitive system that feeds through elite players to international level."
