Melbourne: Experienced pacer Brett Lee feels there is no need to conduct a global search for a new coach and current Australian fielding coach Steve Rixon can become the long-term successor to Tim Nielsen.
"They can search the world, and I think it's important they do look at the options, but there's something in our backyard that I think we should use," Lee was quoted as saying in the 'Sydney Morning Herald'.
"He's been great for me. You look back at his record -everything he's touched has turned to gold. The guys love him around the side. He brings a different coaching method to a lot of other people. If I could have it my way, I'd definitely have him as head coach," he added.
