Coley resigns as Jamaica coach, accepts CWI role

Andre Coley has stepped down as head coach of the Jamaica senior men's cricket team.

The 47-year-old Coley, a former national wicketkeeper, has taken up duty as West Indies A head coach and as a member of the coaching staff for the Cricket West Indies (CWI) High-Performance programme, which is geared at developing young players.

He became the Jamaica Scorpions coach for the start of the 2019-20 regional cricket season after a previous two-year stint with the Windward Islands Volcanoes.

Coley has coached at the West Indies level before, having served as an assistant for several years, spanning tenures of men's head coaches Ottis Gibson, Phil Simmons and Stuart Law.

Coley guided the West Indies Under-19 team at the 2010 World Cup.

He was also assistant to West Indies former women's team coach Sherwin Campbell.
