Terry Walsh has quit as India hockey coach. After his second term remained unresolved following a marathon six-hour meeting by the special Sports Authority of India committee on Monday, Hockey India president Narinder Batra had alleged financial irregularities during Walsh's tenure.

Although Walsh had left it to his employers, SAI, Hockey India was in no mood to retain the Australian coach, who helped India win the Asian Games gold recently.
