LONDON - English county side Sussex named former Australia pace bowler Jason Gillespie as their new head coach on Monday. The 42-year-old led Yorkshire to promotion from the second division in 2012 and back-to-back titles in 2014 and 2015. He ran Trevor Bayliss close when he was appointed as England coach and earlier this year had a short-term spell with Kent.  'I am thrilled to be given the opportunity of taking the reins at such a proud and traditional club like Sussex ,' said Gillespie , who will coach the Adelaide Strikers in Australia's Big Bash before taking up his new role.
