Wright looking at other options

2:18 pm on 2 May 2012

The outgoing New Zealand cricket coach John Wright says he hasn't had any firm job offers but he's looking at other opportunities.

Wright, who has been the Black Caps coach since late 2010, will give up the reigns following the upcoming tour to the West Indies, after declining an offer to extend his contract.

The former India coach cited a clash of philosophies with New Zealand director of cricket John Buchanan as the major factor in his decision to step down.

Wright says it's the right time to move on and hasn't ruled out coaching at international level with another country.
