Stuart Law has resigned as the head coach of Queensland and the Brisbane Heat, even though he still has one year left on his contract.
With Queensland currently in last place on the Sheffield Shield rankings, assistant coach Justin Sternes will take over Law’s position for the remainder of the season.
“After consultation with the board, and much agonising, I have reached a decision to stand down from the position as head coach,” Law said. “That is not a decision that I have taken lightly but one that will hopefully produce the desired results for Queensland in the future.
“I wish the players, the support staff and Queensland Cricket all the best for the rest of the season. I am a passionate, diehard Queenslander who hates losing and that will never change. And to the fans, thanks for your support and passion for what we do.”
Queensland Cricket chairman Jim Holding added: “We are moving on with a comprehensive evaluation of our elite coaching set-up and resources and will take the necessary steps to put in place a structure that will be best placed to deliver success for our key strategic targets.
“We thank Stuart for his commitment to the Bulls and the Heat and wish him the best in his next endeavours. He will always fill a proud role in the eyes of cricket fans from his playing performances with the Bulls and Australia and this decision will not alter his standing in Queensland’s history.”
