Richard Pybus has resigned from his current position as the head coach of Cape Cobras with immediate effect. Pybus was in charge of the Cape Town-based franchise for two seasons during which they won three titles.
"There are a range of issues to do with the chief executive and the franchise that have undermined me as head coach and made my continued position untenable," Pybus said. "I won't be making any further media comment at this stage."
Although Cobras won this season's Franchise 1-Day Cup, they failed to defend their first-class and Twenty20 titles. They also failed to qualify for the Champions League T20 after finishing fifth in the MiWay T20 Challenge.
The Cobras chief executive Andre Odendaal and the board will discuss Pybus' resignation at a meeting on Monday evening, after which they will issue a response.
Pybus has had two stints as coach of Pakistan. He has previously coached the Titans franchise, based in Centurion, where he also enjoyed success. He also had a brief stint at Middlesex but made his name at Border, in the Eastern Cape, where he played an instrumental role in developing Mark Boucher.
