Ireland`s Trent Johnston replaces Trevor Bayliss as NSW coach

Sydney: Former Ireland captain and fast bowler Trent Johnston was Tuesday appointed as New South Wales`s new head coach, replacing Trevor Bayliss who left to take charge of England.

Australian-born Johnston, who had been interim coach since Bayliss was appointed to the England job in May, beat off a string of contenders, reportedly including Bangladesh coach Chandika Hathurusingha.

"This is a very exciting opportunity for me and I am ready to take this next step in my career," said Johnston. 

"I am passionate about cricket, I am passionate about coaching and I am passionate about NSW." 

The 41-year-old made his first-class debut for NSW alongside Brett Lee in 1999 before moving to Ireland for family reasons.
