THE Malaysian Hockey Confederation's (MHC) executive board meeting today is set to discuss a myriad of issues, with the most crucial being the appointment of a foreign coach.
Also hot on the agenda will be the calendar, as MHC has to accommodate the Malaysia Hockey League, the Sultan of Johor Cup, the Champions Challenge I, Razak Cup and the 2013 Asia Cup.
And then there is also the proposed attachment of juniors for overseas leagues.
"Yes, there are several issues to discuss and iron out in the meeting. The coach's appointment will also be touched on, and maybe a solution will be found at the end of the meeting," said MHC secretary Johari Aziz.
Current national coach Tai Beng Hai might find himself as the director of coaching, or coaching an age-group squad.
The front-runner among the foreign coaches is Paul Revington of South Africa, who last coached the Irish team to the silver medal in the Dublin Olympic Qualifier.
The other possible candidate to replace Beng Hai is Australian Paul Gaudoin.
