Well he needs paying by somebody and the Aussie player pay dispute and tour cancellations impact on him too.

He is level headed enoug to get experience in a variety of places to strengthen his case as Boofs long term successor and he won't be short of offers.

Shame we didn't offer him chance to return this summer...

I think we are going to regret not doing everything humanely possible to have kept Dizzy as long as possible, even if that meant allowing him 6 months of the year with his family down under.

Kent were able to entice him back to the UK

It might have cost a bit BUT i have always believed in "dont think about how much it will cost short term, think about how much it will save in the longer term"

The team has at best stagnated since he left, at worst gone backwards

He probably wanted to leave for a fresh challenge, all coaches in a particular job have a shelf life. It was probably not possible to keep him for any longer.

No jokes from me about this appointment. Very, very tempting though.

That was in effect what we gave him when we allowed him to sign as coach for the Adelaide Strikers (I think he went home immediately after the end of the season and didn't return until well into the new year). I know that it was done for the best of reasons (and to improve his T20 coaching skills which would benefit the club, but I wonder if this turned out to be a negative - being away for some of the pre-season period.

I agree with the 'shelf-life' theory. He had given all he had to give to Yorkshire, left us in much better shape than when he arrived, time to move on.

He could, of course, return one day and use his magic on a new generation of Yorkshire players - if he wanted to. Exceptional man.
