Cricket Tasmania has announced a big change to its coaching structure for the Tigers' Sheffield Shield campaign, with Jeff Vaughan to step up to the head role this summer.
He will replace Adam Griffith in the position, who will take on a role which will allow him to spend "a greater amount of time overseeing Cricket Tasmania's male program as a whole including its elite player pathway".
Griffith, the former Tasmanian paceman, will still be the man in charge for the domestic one-day cup and with the Hobart Hurricanes in the Big Bash League.
Griffith, who is originally from the North of the state, has been the head coach for the Tigers' white ball and red ball cricket for the past two summers, leading the state to finals in the one-day cup (2018-19) and Sheffield Shield (in 2017-18). He has also led the Hobart Hurricanes to the semi-final stage of last summer's BBL.
He also recently spent time with the Australian team at the Cricket World Cup, a tournament that ended for the national team at the semi-final stage.
"Jeff Vaughan ran our program magnificently while I was away earlier in pre-season and as much as this is a fantastic development opportunity for him, it's also a great one for me," Griffith said on Thursday.
"I'm looking forward to still leading our program, which enables me to work closer with the coaches and the next generation of Tasmanian Tigers and Hurricanes players in our pathway."
Vaughan added: "Being offered this rare opportunity to be at the head of the Tigers' Sheffield Shield side is a really exciting moment for me and I'm ready to learn as much as I can from the experience.
"The playing group have put in a really solid body of work this winter and they're currently working hard on some final touches before we go away next week."
Vaughan, the former South Australian batsman, had been Griffith's senior assistant with the Shield team.
The Tigers' first one-day cup match of the summer will be on September 23, against Victoria, while its Sheffield Shield campaign will start on October 10 against Western Australia.
