Sammy, 39, captained each pink and white ball West Indies groups and led the Caribbean facet to 2 T20 World Cup titles in 2012 and 2016.
“It will be a challenge but one that I’m ready for and excited about. I’m really looking forward to the opportunity, especially looking at the players we have and the impact that I believe I can have in the dressing room,” Sammy stated.
“When I look around there is an abundance of talent. And what I saw in South Africa in the white ball matches under new captains Shai Hope and Rovman Powell and the leadership provided by Andre Coley, there is great belief that we can do well.”
Coley, a former wicketkeeper for Jamaica, was interim head coach of the pink ball facet when West Indies toured Zimbabwe and South Africa earlier this yr. He will even coach the West Indies A crew.
“I am looking forward to the challenges ahead, as well as the opportunities as we sharpen our focus on moving up the test rankings, and qualifying for the World Test Championship final in June 2025,” Coley stated.
