Sussex have appointed former Australia fast bowler Jason Gillespie as their new head coach on a three-year deal, the county side announced on Monday. The 42-year-old guided Yorkshire to the County Championship title in 2014 and 2015 and will take up his post in the New Year, in time for pre-season preparations. "I look forward to getting over there and playing my role in helping Sussex achieve its on and off-field goals for 2018 and beyond," Gillespie said in a statement on the club's website (www.sussexcricket.co.uk).
