Proteas coach Ottis Gibson has confirmed that he will assume the role of bowling coach as well as his head coach duties moving on Charl Langeveldt.
Langeveldt has been the bowling coach since Allan Donald left the role after the 2015 World Cup Semi-final defeat to New Zealand.
Speaking after the Proteas win over Bangladesh in Potchefstroom Gibson confirmed that he will unveil his support team in the coming weeks.
Gibson said: “Obviously, Cricket South Africa have to make that happen. At the moment, there are just names of people that I think can do a good job with the team, some overseas, some local.
“I will do the bowling, then there will be a batting coach, a fielding coach, an assistant coach and a spin bowling coach – so four, plus myself.
“Having spoken to Charl, bowling has always been my specialism as a coach, fast bowling. He fully understands that.”
Batting coach Neil Mckenzie appears to be the only member of the support staff likely to be retained if the rumours prove true.
Former Proteas batsman Dale Benkenstein is considered the frontrunner for the position of assistant coach.
Langeveldt has been linked with the vacant England fast bowling coach role which Gibson vacated when he took up the Proteas head coach position.
