Graham Ford, the former South Africa coach, has announced he is quitting as head coach of the Dolphins, the Durban-based franchise. Ford, who requested to be released with immediate effect, said he had ambitions of coaching an international side.

"While I feel a passion for Dolphins cricket, I respectfully ask for an immediate release from my Dolphins coaching position in order to follow my dreams of involvement at an international level," Ford said.

Ford took over as coach of South Africa from Bob Woolmer in 1999 and held the position till 2001. He moved to Kent as director of cricket in 2004, and in 2006 he returned home to take charge of the Dolphins. In June 2007, he was offered the challenge of coaching India but, to the embarrassment of the BCCI, declined. In 2009, he withdrew his name from the shortlist of candidates for the England coaching job.
Is it possible to get him now? Seriously speaking though wonder where he is planning to go. Pakistan have a vacancy but that's about to be filled by Whatmore. After the horrendous performance of India, might they be looking for a new coach? But I doubt they'd offer him the position again given he declined it once already.
