Former Zimbabwe spinner Paul Strang will step down as the coach of New Zealand domestic side Auckland at the end of the season, ending a four-year tenure.
Strang, who had been contemplating his future as a coach from the start of the ongoing season, cited the need for a new approach for the team as a reason for his decision.
"The team has moved forward quite a bit in four years and now is really a good opportunity to get a new voice and new way of doing things," he told New Zealand Herald.
After working as the coach of Auckland A, Strang was appointed the coach of Auckland in February 2009. He has led his team to two domestic Twenty20 titles, and one one-day title.
Strang will be Auckland's assistant coach for the upcoming Ford Trophy, the domestic 50-overs competition, for which former New Zealand opener Matt Horne will take over as the coach.
