Steve Rhodes leaves Worcestershire after 33 years
Steve Rhodes has left his role as Worcestershire's director of cricket following an investigation into his conduct.
The club announced the 53-year-old’s departure, after more than three decades at New Road, in a brief three sentence statement on their official website.
It read: “Steve Rhodes has left WCCC with immediate effect. We thank him for his 33 years as a player, coach and Director of Cricket. We wish him well in the future.”
Rhodes had been suspended by the club last month, with reports claiming he had delayed telling the county about the arrest of all-rounder Alex Hepburn, who has now been charged with two counts of rape.
He was also axed as England under-19s coach for next year’s World Cup.
Rhodes represented Worcestershire for more than two decades as a player after first joining the county in 1984.
He became director of cricket in 2006 and led the Pears to the County Championship Division Two title last season.
