Ali De Winter and Greg Shipperd have been selected to lead the Tasmanian Tigers men's side into its new phase.
It was announced earlier this month that former Tigers coach Jeff Vaughan would vacate the head coaching role to be an assistant coach with the national team, with De Winter and Shipperd selected to oversee the change.
De Winter, who is Cricket Tasmania's head of pathways and talent for the men's program, will coach the side in an interim capacity when Vaughan departs in August, while Shipperd will be a coach consultant for the same period.
Having coached the Sydney Sixers to the past two BBL titles, Shipperd will be better remembered by Tasmanian cricket fans for his 11-season stint at the helm of the Tigers, leading them to their first Sheffield Shield final.
Since then, he has led Victoria, the Melbourne Stars, Delhi Daredevils and the Sixers across Australian domestic cricket and the Indian Premier League.
Cricket Tasmania has begun its search for a full-time head coach, with general manager of high performance Simon Insley stressing the importance of a clear program structure.
"This is such a crucial role for our organisation and we want to make sure we take the time to complete a thorough process in recruiting for Jeff's replacement," Insley said.
However, our program needs to keep running, business as usual.Cricket Tasmania's Simon Insley
"Yes, we have lost some key coaching personnel recently, but in what is a huge credit to Jeff, Griff [Adam Griffith] and the whole team, our program is set up so it is not reliant on any one person to succeed.
"It is great for our program that Ali has agreed to come into this role in an interim capacity.
"He has been involved in cricket in Tasmania for a long time and knows the group well through his work in the pathways and talent management space.
"He absolutely has the capacity to do an excellent job in this role, but he has also made it clear that he will not be applying for the position on a permanent basis, due to his passion for the work he's doing in the pathways space.
"Greg's credentials obviously speak for themselves, and it will be fantastic to have his knowledge and skills to contribute to our program, which I'm sure will benefit both the players and coaching staff alike."
After progressing through the ranks to coach the Tigers, the past two seasons under Vaughan's leadership saw them place fifth in the Shield in 2019-20 before mid-table finishes in both the Shield and one-day competitions last season.
