With the quest for a permanent coach for the West Indies men's team still on, CEO of Cricket West Indies Johnny Grave has hinted that the board could turn to a regional coach for the solution. Otis Gibson and Phil Simmons are two of the most recent former players to have coached the West Indies men's team.
Outside of those the regional board has opted for overseas coaches with Australian Stuart Law being the most recent. However, in a recent interview Cricket West Indies CEO Johnny Grave announced that more focus will be paid to homegrown coaches.
Some experts are now assessing whether or not there are coaches in the region that are able to operate at the international level. A list of regional coaches was compiled by Director of Cricket Jimmy Adams for appointment in an interim capacity following the departure of Stuart Law.
Current interim men's coach Richard Pybus will remain in charge of the team until the India series which starts this summer. Grave though says regional coaches should be supported.
