Lillee’s found a new employer

Rumours will be flying around the next few days (weeks?). Please let it be the Windies, somehow, make it happen. He would do WONDERS, not only for their bowlers, but for their general backroom management (which needs serious fixing):

Dennis Lillee, who last month walked away from his coaching position at Australia’s academy, has been offered a job by another Test-playing nation, according to The Sydney Morning Herald.

“I don’t want to say who it’s from, because it’s too premature to say,” Lillee told the newspaper. “But it’s there and it’s interesting.”

Lillee, 55, had been involved with developing and coaching players for Australia for 15 years before leaving, and at the time, Rod Marsh, a former team-mate of his for both Western Australia and Australia, described him as “the best fast bowling coach in the world.” According to The Sydney Morning Herald, India, South Africa and Sri Lanka had expressed an interest in employing Lillee.
