Gibson in demand

West Indies could be looking for a new head coach as it has emerged that Ottis Gibson could be in contention for the role of director of cricket at Warwickshire.Gibson, who led West Indies to the World Twenty20 in October, is understood to be one of more than 100 in contention to succeed Ashley Giles at Edgbaston.

Giles left Warwickshire after leading the club to the county championship title in 2012 to take up the role of coach of England’s limited-overs teams.

While Gibson has previously intimated his desire to remain with the West Indies team, he is out of contract with the West Indies Cricket Board later this year and, after the CEO Ernest Hilaire quit in September and with the president Julian Hunte due to depart in March, he might feel his future is more secure elsewhere.Efforts to reach Gibson today were unsuccessful.
