LONDON – Former England coach Peter Moores is in the frame for the job as South Africa's coach following the sacking of Ottis Gibson at the weekend.
According to a report in a London newspaper, Moores, who had two stints as England coach, could be in the running since Gibson was given the boot after South Africa's disappointing World Cup campaign.
Moores's three-year contract at Nottinghamshire runs out at the end of the English summer and though there is nothing official yet, his name has been bandied about as a potential successor for the Proteas job.
Moores, who is 56, had mixed fortunes in his two stints with England. After succeeding Duncan Fletcher, a former Proteas coach in 2012, Moores lost the job, after a very public row with Kevin Pietersen.
The fall-out also affected Pietersen, who was also sacked.
