Pybus appointed Windies head coach
West Indies' high performance director Richard Pybus is set to be named as the new head coach and will replace Nic Pothas in the role.
Pybus has been in his current position since February, working with the selectors and coaches in the Caribbean but he will now step into the top job.
Pothas had been overseeing the Windies on an interim basis after replacing Australian Stuart Law, who quit the post earlier this year to take up a coaching position with Middlesex.
Law was less than two years into the job but opted to switch to county cricket, with Pothas moving into the role after operating as the team's fielding coach.
His spell in charge has not been universally successful, with West Indies losing Test and ODI series to Bangladesh 2-0 and 2-1 respectively.
They did claim the T20Is 2-1 but there is much work for Pybus to do, with his contract set to run until the 2019 Test series against India, which follows the ODI World Cup in England.
