London: Former West Indies cricket great Jimmy Adams is ending his five year spell as head coach of English county Kent, he announced on Monday.
The 48-year-old who played 54 Tests and 127 One Day Internationals from 1992 to 2003 will be returning to Jamaica.
"I've enjoyed my time at Kent which has been a great learning experience for me," Adams told the county side's website.
"I wanted to be involved in a club that was seeking to grow and I am fortunate to have found that here at Kent over the past five seasons.
"It's been a delight being involved with all our players as they have developed during the period and especially watching the younger players who have made the step up to First Class level."
Club chairman George Kennedy said that the fruits of Adams's labours was evident from the home grown talent now in the squad.
"We thank Jimmy for his fine service of the club and wish him all the best for the future," said Kennedy.
"His commitment to developing Kentish cricket talent is shown by the core of homegrown players now at the heart of our professional squad."
