Craig McDermott signs 2-year contract extension, becomes Australia's assistant coach

  • Print

MELBOURNE, Australia - The success of Australia's pace barrage against England and South Africa over the southern summer has earned Craig McDermott an upgraded two-year contract which will make him an assistant coach to Darren Lehmann.

Cricket Australia announced Monday that McDermott would work with the test and limited-overs squads into 2016, with an initial focus on the 2015 World Cup.

Australia regained the top test ranking last week for the first time since 2009, with much of the success derived from the fearsome attack led by Mitchell Johnson and Ryan Harris under the guidance of McDermott.

CA's team performance manager Pat Howard said McDermott, a fiery former test fast bowler, "has built a really strong rapport with the bowling group ... (and) it has proved to be a successful combination in recent times."
