    After the comments during the week, no real surprise at Moles' decision. As for Vettori officially coaching the side, IMO thats the last thing he needs on top of an ever-increasing workload in leading the side on the field.

    I am sad now that it has happened for Moles. But glad as a blackcaps fan.

    If other teams can attract top quality coaches we should be able to.
    I guess someone posted - that NZ's players aren't as glamorous as Tendulkar or Sangakarra so that it is a problem with attracting a top coach. Maybe we can make up for it by throwing cash at the problem.

    I don't think Moles will get hired again by another international team minnow or not.

    Why can't Crowe get off his duff and coach us himself instead of offering advice from the sidelines. Put him through a fast track learning process.

    Because Crowe would have to give up his position at SKY TV and that won't happen any time soon.

    I can't believe the lack of support given to Moles when Bracewell was given so, so much rope to hang himself twenty times over. Moles has had a tiny pool of talent to deal with after Bracewell basically cajoled some of the best, more experienced players into retirement. Total bollocks.

    Crowe seems far too upredictable and opinionated to make a good coach IMO

    Mostly agree with Heath; can't think what Bracewell did to be allowed to hang around for so long - perhaps was matey enough with the other senior players and NZC. Left the (test) team so weak that Moles or anyone else would have had a hard time improving anything fast. I have little idea whether Moles was a good coach or not though.

    At least can be happy that this all seems to have happened quickly and smoothly. Article comes out and a few days later he's gone. Could conceivably have dragged on for months.

    True, true. Nothing worse for a team than continual speculation over the coach and/or senior players. Making Vettori coach is a non-starter though. He's too important.

    From most reports I've read, all the players like Moles as a person they just think he is an inept coach.
