Franks becomes Notts Assistant Head Coach

Paul Franks, the Nottinghamshire stalwart whose playing career with the Club began in 1997, has been promoted to the role of Assistant Head Coach.

The 37-year-old from Mansfield, who retired from the first-class game as a player in 2015, steps up from his current captaincy and coaching role with the Second XI and Academy.

Having completed the coveted ECB Level 4 qualification, won the Second XI Championship in 2015 and furthered his experience with stints coaching the United Arab Emirates, will work alongside recently appointed Head Coach Peter Moores in day-to-day charge of the first team.

“Paul has been taking steps into coaching for a number of years,” said Nottinghamshire Director of Cricket Mick Newell.

“We’ve encouraged him in that and now we feel he’s ready for this extra responsibility.

“Not only is Paul an impressive young coach, he’s also part of the fabric of the Club having achieved so much during his time as a player.

“Peter has worked with lots of coaches in both county and international cricket – and he’s very been very impressed with what he’s seen from Paul.

“Having played alongside our senior players, and been hugely involved in the development of the younger generation, he’s well placed to get the best out of that group of players.”
