Brezzie? Past it. Should be parcelled off to a div 2 outfit.

I echo all the comments here. As to replacements I think there are several contenders - it wouldnt surprise me if Collingwood was approached though I suspect he sees his long term future in that role at Durham. Farbrace is an interesting one. He doesnt seem that fussed about status. Kent coach - Sri Lankan assistant coach - Yorkshire second team coach - Sri Lankan Coach - England Assistant Coach. Think that's the right order. I think he is more interested in going for a job that interests him. I wouldnt rule him out completely (does he still live locally?) but it may be too soon into his current tenure to make another move. It also wouldnt surprise me if JG is asked for his opinion - he might have some useful suggestions from down under

Even giving his Durham connections, I think Collingwood would love to be our coach, more so than with the cash strapped Durham.
Yorkshire Coach must be the most sought after position on the county circuit.

some people have a very short memory if it was not for Bresnan would we have beaten notts .

Sorry Peter, if this is a response to my comment above, it was a flippant one, harking back to this absurd suggestion being made by someone at the start of the season.Tim is in my view, the most valuable county cricketer in the country, given the impossible balance which now exists between quality and availability. Ryan would be my second choice.
|August 29 2016, 6:41 PM |
Ah yes, those "Bresnan is no longer a first choice player and should be shipped to Derbyshire" posts! Hilarious. I agree he's by far the best all round cricketer in county cricket, we're very lucky to have him.

Think it was slightly inevitable Gillespie going due to family reasons. No one irreplacable but next coach has big boots to fill.
Dont have a problem with the timing as the speculation would have been worse on the team.
Would go for Paul Fabrace first but get feeling he will be tempted but will turn it down.
|August 29 2016, 8:43 PM |
I would be highly delighted if Paul Fabrace was interested in taking over from Dizzy

I wonder if Farbrace has a grudge over how his stepson was treated when he left Yorkshire and now plays at Sussex. I think to be fair to current management Ollie Robinson was given a fair chance and did not take notice of warnings given.
Bit confused when the club say the search begins in the close seSon but someone mentions we met with Grayson?
|August 30 2016, 9:32 AM |
The YP quotes Moxon saying that he is talking to a couple of people in the meantime. You can bet one is Farbrace at the forthcoming ODI.
|August 30 2016, 9:55 AM |
I mentioned there was a RUMOUR that the club was meeting Grayson. Actually, my informant said Simon Grayson, the footballer brother of Paul...so perhaps not a very well informed informant!
Sorry I mentioned it really. But, if it happens, you saw it here first!
|August 30 2016, 6:15 PM |
Well, I certainly hope that they're not a very well-informed informant...

Daily Mail reporting today that Farbrace has turned down Yorkshire's offer to succeed Gillespie and next in frame are Dawson or Silverwood.
|September 21 2016, 8:24 PM |
I'd be happy enough with either. Dawson probably my first choice.
If it's Silverwood, wonder if Mags comes as well?
|September 21 2016, 8:39 PM |
Suspect silvers will want to stay put for now having worked his magic with Essex. Would be great to see him back though
|September 21 2016, 11:24 PM |
I'd be happy with Dawson. Shame Gloucestershire don't appear to have a couple of outstanding batsmen he could bring with him!

Can't say I am enthusiastic for a former Yorkshire player to become the next Head Coach, it seems like a step down compared to what the team have been used to.
Someone with international pedigree is a must given Yorkshire is a pathway from gaining England selection, any white ball specialist skills are an added bonus so Yorkshire can genuinely compete in limited overs cricket.
