Durham bowling coach Neil Killeen has been handed added responsibility at the Emirates Riverside by becoming the club’s second XI coach.
The 40-year-old former seamer made over 350 first-team appearances for Durham during a 15-year period before retiring in 2010.
“I see it as a great opportunity to enhance my coaching experience and work closely with some of the young players at Durham,” Killeen said.
“My bowling across the club will continue, but managing the second team will add another chapter to my story at Durham County Cricket Club.
“For me, the second team has always been hugely important because it provides that vital stepping stone before you move up to first-class level.
“It’s about developing individuals within a team environment. This club has always had a strong tradition of developing north-east players, and the more we can do that, the more that will help the club as a whole.”
