After Michael Nobbs' sacking, many former Indian hockey stars lauded the decision and also rooted for MK Kaushik's appointment at the earliest. However, Nobbs was adamant that he was not 'pushed out' but willingly resigned from his post.

New Delhi: Olympian Maharaj Krishan Kaushik was on Wednesday appointed as a coach of the senior men's hockey team, just two days after chief coach Michael Nobbs was shown the door because of non-performance.

Kaushik, a member of India's last of the eight Olympic gold medal winning side in 1980 Moscow Games, will assist High Performance Director, Roelant Oltmans, who will now double up as a chief coach till a suitable replacement for Nobbs is found.

Kaushik's appointment comes barely 48 hours after Australian Nobbs was prematurely relieved of his duties by Sports Authority of India for failing to produce the desired results.
