Faridabad: The Hockey India (HI) on Wednesday, decided to curtail the power of the chief national coach Michael Nobbs by appointing a high performance manager to whom the Australian will be reporting from the coming season.
HI secretary general Narender Batra also announced a few other initiatives that the parent body intends to take up in its bid to improve the national hockey team's disastrous performance at the London Olympics.
"We intend to appoint a high performance manager by end of next month. He will be overseeing the performance of both men's and women's teams with the senior national coaches reporting to him. His job will be to see the successful implementation of coaching from senior to sub junior," Batra stated.
