WICB renews head coach contract

The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) has renewed Ottis Gibson contract as head coach. The term of the contract is for three years until 2016.

Gibson has served in the position for the past three years, from January 2010.

WICB Chief Executive Officer Michael Muirhead said: “Ottis has added significant value to the development of the West Indies team during his tenure and we are delighted to have secured his services for another three years.”

“Most notably is that he led the implementation of a system of professionalism within the team unit and curbed the negative results, which we were experiencing with some frequency. There have also been clear successes under his stewardship from 2010 to date. These include, most notably, having coached the team to the World Twenty20 title, the team showing consistent improvements in the other formats, the reintegration of players into the team unit and the achievement of the set goals as outlined in the WICB Strategic Plan 2011-2016,” Muirhead said.
