The 43-year-old, who was appointed to the role in 2012, is to leave the job on July 31. He said in a statement he wanted to spend more time with his family.
“This job requires 100 percent commitment and is all consuming,” Hesson said. “I know what’s required over the next 12 months, but if I’m honest, I don’t feel I have the capacity to give the job what it deserves.
NZC, in particular David White and the board, have given me incredible support, including flexibility and options. But the idea of missing a match, a tour or a format, as has been proposed at different times, has never sat well with me,” he added.
New Zealand Cricket’s chief executive David White said that while he had tried to persuade Hesson to his contract through, which ran through the end of the World Cup nxt year, he understood the 43-year-old’s decision.
