Dermot Reeve, the Central Districts' coach, has ended his tenure after two years at the helm in order to be close to his family in Sydney.

"I would like to be with Central Districts, ideally, but for me to fulfill a full-time role with any association will not be possible due to family commitments," the former England allrounder said.

Reeve led Central Districts to the Plunket Shield four-day final in 2008-09 before winning this season's Twenty20 competition, but his association with the side has been dogged by controversy in recent times.

Reports of disharmony between the players and Reeve plagued the early stages of Central's Twenty20 campaign in January. He injured his foot in the same month, which curtailed his involvement with the team as he recuperated in Sydney. After watching his side win the Twenty20 competition, he went back to Australia before returning to New Zealand for Central's final four-day match against Northern Districts in Napier last week.

Reeve was also censured and fined by New Zealand Cricket after accusing Auckland's Ravi Bopara of ball-tampering, after a one-day game in December.
