The 63-year-old Lillee, who opted out after serving the academy for 25 years since 1987, has achieved great success by producing several fast bowlers.
McGrath, who will be officially taking over the reins from Lillee, said though it would be hard to live up to the legacy, he would try his best. “It is a tough assignment and I would be happy if I can achieve half of what Dennis had so far. I would like to do what I love to and would like to give back what I have gained from the game,” he said.
