India’s chief coach Graham Reid has decided to step down on Monday. Reid, who took over as the coach in April 2019, submitted his resignation to the Hockey India president Dilip Tirkey. This comes after India’s campaign at the Hockey World Cup 2023 ended in an unwanted way as India finished joint ninth.

“It is now time for me to step aside and hand over the reins to the next management,” Reid said, announcing his retirement. “It has been an honour and privilege to work with the team and Hockey India and I have enjoyed every moment of this epic journey. I wish the team all the very best,” he added.

Among Reid’s successful outing as chief coach with the team includes the FIH Series Final title victory in 2019, subsequently the team broke no sweat in making the qualification for the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 when they won the Qualifiers in Bhubaneswar back in 2019.
