West Indies head coach Ottis Gibson has announced his resignation on the eve of the ODI series against Bangladesh.

The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) confirmed that they and Gibson had “mutually agreed to terminate their association”, ending days of speculation about his future after he was not present during the team’s training session in Grenada on Monday.

It has also been announced that team manager Richie Richardson will take over as head coach on an interim basis.

“On behalf of the board and West Indies cricket as a whole we express our gratitude to Ottis for his work, particularly in coaching the team to winning the ICC World Twenty20 in 2012, and offer our best wishes to him in all his future endeavours,” WICB CEO Michael Muirhead said.

The most notable thing the West Indies accomplished during Gibson’s tenure was winning the 2012 World Twenty20 in Sri Lanka.
