WHITE FERNS head coach Haidee Tiffen has decided against reapplying for the role when her contract expires at the end of July.
Tiffen, who has been the WHITE FERNS head coach for the past four years, said she is really happy and proud of how she has coached this team.
“I believe in collaboration, hard work, respect, and team first and I have enjoyed developing a learning environment where players are supported and encouraged to take responsibility to be better every day”, said Ms Tiffen.
She now wants to look for other opportunities to develop her skills and work with a wider range of people, possibly in different codes.
New Zealand Cricket chief executive David White said Tiffenhad been a valued and highly-respected member of the WHITE FERNS and had contributed strongly to the growth of the women’s game.
“Haidee’s made a decision and we understand and respect that,” said Mr White.
“She is a talented and committed coach who leaves NZC with her head held high, and knowing she has a healthy future in the game.
“Women’s international cricket has been making some rapid gains of late and Haidee has worked tirelessly in what has been an increasingly-competitive high-performance environment.
“We wish her well and thank her for the integrity and passion she has brought to the role.”
