Hockey India announces new foreign coach for the national team



XtraTime Web Desk:
Australian hockey star Graham Reid’s appointment as the men’s national team chief coach till the end of 2020 was ratified on Monday after Hockey India received necessary clearance from the Sports Authority of India.
 
Reid’s appointment was more or less certain after Hockey India recommended his name to the SAI last month.
 
It has been learnt that Reid has been handed a term till the end of next year but his tenure can be extended till 2022 FIH World Cup depending upon his performance.
 
According to a Hockey India official, Reid is expected to draw a salary of USD 15,000 per month and will be shifting base to Bengaluru with his family.
 
“Reid’s tenure will be till the end of next year. As per industry standards, every international coach’s contract is supposed to be for an Olympic cycle.
 
“But his contract will have a provision of extension till 2022. Everything will depend on India’s performances leading upto the Tokyo Olympics,” the official told PTI. The official also said that Reid will soon join the ongoing national camp at Sports Authority of India South Centre in Bengaluru, which began Monday.
 
The Indian chief coach’s position has been lying vacant after the unceremonious sacking of Harendra Singh in January following a less-than-impressive quarterfinal exit at the World Cup in Bhubaneswar last year.
