Mott stepped down as head coach of Australia’s powerful women’s team to take the gig, beating over Paul Collingwood after delighting the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) panel during the interview session.
The 48-year-hiring old’s comes after England Test coach Brendon McCullum was appointed last week, with England’s new managing director Rob Key electing to separate the positions for the first time since 2014, following Chris Silverwood’s dismissal in February.
After been unanimously identified as the standout candidate by the ECB’s selection panel, he is anticipated to be in place for England’s three-match ODI series against the Netherlands in Amsterdam next month.
The jury featured new Managing Director Rob Key, Strategic Adviser Andrew Strauss, Performance Director Mo Bobat, and Tom Harrison, who stepped down as CEO
“It is a true honour to be able to name Mathew Mott as the head coach of our men’s white-ball team,” Key remarked. He has had an amazing coaching path with many different experiences that have led him to this point in which he was excellent in the interview process and the right match for our white-ball squad.
“We are fortunate to have been able to recruit a head coach who has not only worked in international cricket in recent years, but also in franchise cricket throughout the world. More significantly, what he has accomplished with the Australian Women’s team is what will be expected of him with our men’s white-ball teams ” I’m certain that we have a powerful pairing in Eoin Morgan and Matthew Mott that can strive for additional titles in the coming years, and that Matthew will be able to manage any change the squad will go through ahead.
He added, “”Moreover, Matthew will assist us in investing in English coaches in order to provide them with as much experience as possible over the next several decades.”
