Ex-Tasmanian paceman Adam Griffith is new Warriors bowling coach


FORMER Tasmanian paceman Adam Griffith has been appointed as WA's new bowling coach.

Griffith, 33, retired from interstate cricket at the end of last season after 45 first-class games for the Tigers and will commence the newly created role when the Warriors begin pre-season training next week.

The tall right-arm quick has completed a Bachelor of Human Movement degree at the University of Tasmania and is currently undertaking a Masters course in Sports Coaching at the University of Queensland.

Griffith will manage the pathway for young fast bowlers in WA, from under-age squads through to the Warriors, as well as oversee the State under-19 team.

"I have been doing some part-time work for the past few years with Tasmania, but I am looking forward to being able to concentrate on coaching full-time going forward," Griffith said.


"It is an exciting role at the WACA and it will be great to work with some of the promising quicks from the Retravision Warriors including Ryan Duffield and Nathan Coulter-Nile, along with youngsters coming through the ranks such as Joel Paris, and even someone like Michael Hogan to help him continue his development as a strike bowler.

"It will also be a tremendous experience to learn from Mickey Arthur, who is a proven international coach, about what it takes to coach at first class level."

Griffith snared 158 wickets during his first-class career at an average of 32.77 to finish as Tasmania's fifth highest wicket-taker. He is also claimed 56 scalps in the domestic one-day competition.

Warriors coach Mickey Arthur said Griffith would be a valuable behind-the-scenes recruit for the WACA.

"It's fantastic to have a designated bowling coach and I believe we have secured a real coup by obtaining the services of a man who has only just retired from interstate cricket and has long held a desire to enter the world of coaching," Arthur said.

"We have a very talented but very young group of fast bowlers in the system and this necessitated the recruitment of a specialist coach to work with these promising quicks.

"I am really happy with the coaching team that we have assembled. In Adam and Lachlan Stevens I have two young and dynamic men providing me with support and they both have a real passion to take WA cricket back to the top."
