Dave Nosworthy, the former Highveld Lions coach, has emerged as a leading candidate for the vacant role of director of cricket at Somerset.
Nosworthy, a 44-year-old South African who played 29 first-class games for Border and Northern Transvaal, resigned from his Lions post in June, having previously coached Titans and in New Zealand with Canterbury.
Nosworthy led Canterbury to the State Championship title in 2007-08 and the State Shield and T20 competition in 2005-06. While he failed to win a trophy with Lions, he did oversee their progress to two domestic T20 finals and two Champions League appearances. He has previously been on the short-list both for the coaching role of India and New Zealand.
Brian Rose stepped down as Somerset's director of cricket at the end of the 2012 season. The county have been interviewing candidates in recent weeks, after Justin Langer declined to pursue the opportunity at Taunton in preference to taking the Western Australia coaching job.
