Moles Resigns; NZ Coaching Situation

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.

Vettori - captain, selector, number 1 spinner, middle order batting saviour, god.

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.

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.

International Coach
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.

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

Barely seems like yesterday he was appointed. Must be one of the shorter international coach tenures on record.

Seems a bit like the Peter Moores thing, with the players not thinking he's a good enough coach. Presumably they've got someone better in mind, otherwise getting rid of him could be pointless?
