    Tom withdrew from consideration

    If Aust do win the WC (lets hope for crickets sake they don't) he will be on a hiding to nothing, no where to go except down
    You know it makes sense.

    They have numerous coaches up there at the moment. I'd say one of them would get an elevation.

    Is Damien Fleming still involved?

    Great move. Good to have a down to earth coach.

    Moody wanted to stay with SL, and good on him for that.

    It'll be interesting to see what the reaction to Nielsen is - Buchanan, who from the little I've read Nielsen seems to be broadly similar to, always seemed to have the respect of all but the bad-boy Warne-style characters in the Aus dressing-room, but never the Ian Chappells (and is it any coincidence that Warne and Chappell were very close, while Stephen Waugh, who shared a mutual-hate relationship with Chappell, got on superbly with Buchanan?) and the generally old-school types.

    I'd say it's good succession to have the man in charge of the Academy put in charge of the national team.

    How old is Nielsen, BTW?

    Yeah, I thought it was something like that.

    So is he goes well, what's the odds on him breaking Simpson's record for tenure length?

    Interesting move. With a new coach, and new players coming in soon because of more retirements, it's going to be interesting to see how Australia do

    IMO the more "new" the better.

    Once a break is started, better to make it as clean as you can.

    Gilchrist, Hayden, Langer to a large extent (played under Marsh for a season), Gillespie to a large extent (will he ever get back in?), Brett Lee, these are all for-all-intents and purposes Buchanan's players.

    And IMO he could have stood-down at no better moment than at the same time as a large number of his players (though him and Warne going at the same time is nothing more than an irony).

    No, moved back down to Melbourne because of family and health reasons.

    Good to see we have the best coach in world still.

    I think this is a good move for Australia rather then bring back one of their overseas coach. Nielsen has worked pretty closely with all the new players that are going to come into the side at academy level. So he should know how to get the most out of them and the best way to manage their skills, so they can best field the gap left by the retiring players.
