Wright not keen on Scotland coaching job

Craig Wright, the former Scotland captain, has ruled himself out of contention as Scotland's coach and the search to replace Peter Drinnen continues.

Wright missed last week's Quadrangular in Ireland, also involving Netherlands and West Indies, with an ankle injury. But in spite of being placed in charge of Scotland A's 2nd XI Championship match against Durham next week, Wright insists he is still too inexperienced to be considered.

"I'm definitely not interested and am not a contender," Wright told The Scotsman. "It makes sense for me to take the A team because I've worked with a lot of the players at under-age level and this is the next stage.

"I've never made any secret of the fact that coaching is the route I want to go down," added the 33-year-old. "But I need to learn my trade and gain experience."

Since Drinnen's departure, Andy Tennant and Peter Steindl have both been unofficially in charge of the side and will share the position until the end of the season.
