Cricket West Indies (CWI) CEO, Johnny Grave expects a new men’s head coach to be selected at the end of March.
Grave made the comment on the Mason and Guest cricket radio show in Barbados recently.
The head coach’s job became vacant following the resignation of Phil Simmons in October.
Asked about the interim appointment of Andre Coley, Grave said, “I think we didn’t want to rush. I think we wanted to make sure we we get the best candidate and give that person the best opportunity to be successful.”
After Simmons’ decision to quit following the West Indies’ failure to qualify for the Super 12 stage after losing to Scotland and Ireland, Coley was appointed to fill the gap between the tour of Zimbabwe and the next overseas assignment tour in June.
Grave also said that CWI expects to receive the Justice Thompson report, a review of the World Cup performance soon, which will be digested and discussed internationally.
