Williams appointed T&T head coach
PORT OF SPAIN, TRINIDAD - David Williams, overlooked for the post of West Indies assistant coach earlier this year, has been appointed head coach of the Trinidad and Tobago senior team.
The 48-year-old, who played 11 Tests and 36 One-Day Internationals between 1992 and 1996, replaces namesake Kelvin Williams who will now serve as assistant coach.
David Williams held the post of T&T head coach up to 2008 when he resigned to take up the position as assistant to then Windies head coach, Australian John Dyson.
He led West Indies on the one-day tour of Australia in February 2010 following Dyson's depature, before Ottis Gibson took over for Zimbabwe's tour of the Caribbean immediately afterward.
David Williams continued as assistant coach on a tour-by-tour basis until March this year when he was replaced by Englishman Toby Radford.
A former West Indies wicketkeeper, Williams will lead the T&T youth side to the WICB Under-19 Championship in July/August before taking up the senior team post.
His first major assignment is expected to be the T20 Champions League in India, scheduled for October.
