It's understood the former Waikato Bay of Plenty Magic coach Noeline Taurua is considering a job with Cayman Islands netball.

Radio New Zealand has been told Taurua came over to check out the position of technical director this week and was shown around the Caribbean island.

Under Taurua the Magic became the first New Zealand based team to win the trans-Tasman ANZ Championship in 2012.

The former Silver Fern stepped down as coach of the franchise at the end of last season.

Taurua was widely regarded as a likely successor to the current Silver Ferns coach Wai Taumaunu.

The Cayman Islands don't appear on the current netball world rankings list.
