Ottis Gibson likely to team up with Justin Langer as Australia mentor

  • Print





After a not so happy end to his stint with South Africa, where he was sacked post the World Cup debacle earlier this year, Ottis Gibson has emerged as a serious candidate to be Justin Langer's senior assistant and permanent bowling coach, according to a report in the Sydney Morning Herald.
"He is an outstanding coach. He was head coach of West Indies, head coach of South Africa, very highly regarded. I know Ottis well - he is an outstanding person. I have spoken to Ottis a couple of times [about joining CA]," Langer said.
"We are just going through that process at the moment and, hopefully, we can lock someone away soon."
Australia are all set for a new coaching model, and Gibson could be announced as mentor. The former West Indies coach was also in the frame to replace Trevor Bayliss in England before Chris Silverwood was handed the job. He has had two stints as England's bowling coach.
