Dan Marsh, seen here in action for the Tasmanian Tigers in 2009, has been named the new coach of the team, replacing Tim Coyle.

SON of a gun Dan Marsh has been appointed coach of the Tasmanian Tigers for the next three years.

The son of Australian cricket legend and Test selector Rod Marsh, 39-year-old Dan will steer the Tigers until 2015-16.

Marsh replaces Tim Coyle, who walked away as the state's most successful coach and one of the best in the country over the past seven years

Cricket Tasmania had 25 applications for the job, with applicants from Australia and New Zealand as well as India and South Africa.

"We made this decision following a very thorough process," said CT chairman Tony Harrison.

"We advertised the position throughout the cricket network and we received applications from around Australia and overseas.

"We believe the appointment we have made is the right appointment to continue the great culture of Tasmanian cricket which has rewarded us substantially over the past six years.

"Dan is the man that will continue the job Tim Coyle has done here.

"We are very pleased about that and we congratulate Dan on his appointment."

Under Coyle's tenure, Tasmania won three Shield titles and triumphed in two one-day cup deciders, while also reaching another two coloured clothing finals and last year's Shield loss to Queensland at the Gabba.

"Dan has been part of that success, firstly as a player and captain of the Tigers, and latterly on our coaching staff," Harrison said.

"But it was never a foregone conclusion.

"We were very confident we had quality coaches in our system, like Allister de Winter and Michael Di Venuto who are now coaching in the national system, and before them Troy Cooley.

"So we are developing very professional and competent coaches.

"We were confident we had the right coach in the system but we wanted to be sure and the board wanted to go through a proper due diligence process.

"Dan came out on top and that's fantastic."

Marsh started his new job immediately after today's announcement at Blundstone Arena.

"I'm very excited and honoured to be given the role and I can't wait to get started," he said.

The Hurricanes coaching role is still vacant, and Marsh will also be considered for that job.
