Warwickshire will hold second interviews for shortlisted candidates next week as they seek to fill the role of director of cricket following Ashley Giles' departure to coach the England limited-overs teams. Candidates will be expected to stage a presentation to the interview panel with the name of the successful applicant due to be announced in the week beginning January 28.
Reports that Ottis Gibson, the West Indies coach, had already been appointed to the role were premature. While ESPNcricinfo understands Gibson is among the short-listed candidates, the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) remain confident of retaining his services. It is expected that his West Indies contract, which expires in a couple of months, will be discussed at the next meeting of the WICB in St Lucia next week.
Other candidates for the Warwickshire role who are expected to be interviewed for a second time in the coming days include David Parsons, the ECB performance director, Graeme Welch, Warwickshire current bowling coach, and Dougie Brown, the club's assistant coach. David Hemp, former Glamorgan and Bermuda captain and now coaching at Solihull School, is understood to not have been invited for a second interview, while Andy Moles, former Scotland, Kenya and New Zealand coach, was discounted without a first interview.
