Victorian Cricket Association
February 6, 2002
The Victorian Cricket Association today announced the position of State Coach will be advertised nationally this weekend. The move to advertise the position is in accordance with the agreement reached with current coach Michael O'Sullivan in October.
"With the timing of John Scholes resignation prior to the start of the season, we felt that it was not appropriate to advertise the position at that time and entered into an agreement with Michael O'Sullivan for this season accordingly. We would however expect that Michael will be an applicant for the position", VCA Chief Executive Officer Ken Jacobs said.
With the ACB/State player contracting process beginning immediately after the completion of the 2001/02 season, the VCA believe it to be imperative that the State Coach be appointed prior to this process and contribute significantly to the development of the Bushrangers 2002/03 playing list.
