BRIDGETOWN, Barbados, Feb 1, CMC – Ottis Gibson has been named as the new West Indies head coach, the West Indies Cricket Board confirmed Monday evening.

This comes after weekend media reports said the former West Indies fast bowler had quit his post as bowling coach with the England team.

Gibson will fill the post made vacant by Australian John Dyson who was axed last year following the Bangladesh series.

The 40-year-old Barbadian played two Tests and 15 One-Day Internationals but his career was largely as an itinerant professional, playing for Border, Griqualand West and Guateng in South Africa and Durham, Glamorgan and Leicestershire in England.

    Great signing. Ottis has organised the England bowling attack as one of the best in the world since he was appointed as bowling coach for the England team Hope he can accomplish the same with Windies bowling attack and get Windies back on top of world cricket.
