Harendra, Dhanraj apply for hockey coach's job

The newly-formed development committee of Hockey India, headed by former India captain Pargat Singh, met here on Wednesday for the first time and discussed at length the various aspects related to the game, including prospective candidates for the posts of national team’s coach which is lying vacant after Spaniard Jose Brasa’s contract expired last month.

According to a highly-placed source in Hockey India, the development committee has so far received 10 applications from within the country for the coach’s position and has also approached the International Hockey Federation to suggest some foreign candidate’s name.

“Today, the development committee met for the first time and discussed in length about all the issues, including that of coaches. The committee will meet here again January 5,” the source told ‘PTI’.

“The committee has so far received 10 applications for the coach’s post. Among Indians, Pillay, Harendra and Clawrence Lobo are the notable names who have applied. They are discussing every angle and have also approached FIH for suggestion on foreign candidates,” he added.
