Resigns after finishing bottom of Carib Beer Cup February 8, 2006

Robert Haynes has resigned as head coach of Jamaica following their disastrous performance in this season's Carib Beer Cup when they finished bottom without a win.

Haynes, 41, had been coach of Jamaica since 1999 when he took over from Rohan Kanhai. In 2004-05, Jamaica won the Carib Beer Cup at a canter, but this season the side has been a far from happy unit, with reports of internal disputes.

"Losing out in the competition was a big blow; this is just part of the same big blow," said Brian Breese, Jamaica Cricket Association's cricket operations officer. "I suppose. But we have to wheel and come again and do what we did last year when we won the competition easily."
