Former Yorkshire captain Anthony McGrath has become the club’s coaching consultant across all three formats.
McGrath, who represented England in four Tests and 14 ODIs, retired in 2013 after scoring 14,698 runs for Yorkshire in a 17-year county career.
During last year’s county season, in which Yorkshire won the County Championship for the first time in 13 years, McGrath mentored a lot of players in the squad.
It has also been announced that Ian Dews will coach Yorkshire’s 2nd XI, while Richard Damms has been appointed as head coach of the club’s academy.
“Following Richard’s departure, I felt it was important to restructure the coaching arm of the club quickly and reward those personnel that have done a fantastic job over recent years,” Yorkshire’s director of cricket, Martyn Moxon, said. “I believe that we have one the of best cricket set-ups in the country and it is important for our continued progression as a club, across all aspects of development, that we have some continuity.
“Ian, Richard and Anthony are all first-class in their respective areas. More importantly, they have the best interests of Yorkshire cricket and have been central to our growth over the past few years.”
