Glamorgan have given head of elite performance Matthew Mott permission to talk to New Zealand Cricket about becoming their new head coach.
The Black Caps are looking for a new man at the helm after coach John Wright announced earlier this year that he would step down in August.
Australian Mott, who took up his post at Glamorgan in January last year, has been approached about the role.
Glamorgan are against losing the 38-year-old's services, but do not do want to stand in the way of him furthering his career.
"We are keen to retain Matthew Mott's services - however, like all good coaches, he has aspirations to work at the highest level and we have therefore given him our blessing to apply for the vacant head coach role at New Zealand Cricket," Glamorgan chief executive Alan Hamer told the club's official website.
"We understand that Matthew is one of a number of applicants being interviewed for this role and that the process will be concluded by the end of this month. The club will make no further comment until the outcome of this process is known."
