BDFlag Head Coach hunt - Greatbatch, Hooper, McDermott

Hooper in the mix for Bangladesh coaching role

The Bangladesh Cricket Board has accelerated its hunt for the next head coach even before the January 25 deadline for receiving applications, with the former West Indies captain Carl Hooper in the mix. The BCB is looking to fill the position before the tour of Sri Lanka in March.

"We have sent out an advertisement seeking a coach and that (deadline) ends on January 25, but we are also looking elsewhere," Jalal Yunus, the BCB media committee chairman, told ESPNcricinfo. "We know that Carl Hooper is interested in taking the job."

After retiring from international cricket in 2003, Hooper hasn't had a major international coaching job. Two years ago, he was the batting coach of the Sagicor High Performance Centre in Barbados.

The former Australia fast bowler Craig McDermott is also vying for the position. "Mark Greatbatch (former New Zealand batsman), who had applied when we last looked for a coach, is still interested, as is Craig McDermott," Yunus said.

McDermott is currently Ireland's bowling coach and is understood to be shortlisted as Somerset's coach. McDermott had also served as Australia's bowling coach before quitting last May. ESPNcricinfo understands that Mick Newell, Nottinghamshire's director of cricket, remains interested in an international coaching position if the terms are appropriate. He had earlier pulled out of the race after initially showing interest when Bangladesh was looking to replace Stuart Law last year.

Following Richard Pybus' resignation in October, Shane Jurgensen, the bowling coach, took over as the interim coach during the home series against West Indies, Bangladesh's last international assignment. Yunus said that if the BCB cannot find a suitable replacement ahead of the Sri Lanka tour, they will ask Jurgensen to continue.

But Hooper has no previous significant coaching experience. I am not too sure about him.

don't mind, considering the options. If he signs the contract, he can't back off, can he?

Well, most of us despise a bowling head coach as i noticed. And NZ did not do great under Greatbatch as well.

In that context, Hooper should be ahead. But has he proven much?

On the contrary, I have not seen many of us 'despise' a bowling head coach. The reason that many here are against Jurgensen is because he is a failure as a bowling coach.
And no, Hooper is not proven.

Mick Newell for me. But BCB must make sure that the newly appointed. Coach will be willing to stay in BD for the next 2 years. Don't want to see anymore Law or Pybus saga.

Yup, that would be important. Also don't want to see a coach working with us without even signing a contract

"It has been a very difficult decision to leave my position as the bowling coach of the Australian cricket team, a job I have thoroughly enjoyed since beginning 12 months ago," McDermott said. "However the team's schedule is a particularly busy one and after looking at the upcoming touring demands, I felt this to be the right decision from a personal and professional point of view.
Busy schedule and he is out

On the face of it, all bad choices. Unless one of these guys is a hidden gem/inexplicably compatible. Why can't these people keep their mouths shut and announce the coach's name when he's hired instead of throwing random names around?

Good one. however, we need someone like Siddons who is dedicated enough to coach BD team for a long term. So far the list isnt impressive.
