Australia bowling coach Craig McDermott has stepped down after just 12 months in the role.

McDermott, who has been prominent in the development of young fast
bowlers James Pattinson, Pat Cummins and Mitchell Starc, cited the
conflict between touring demands and family life as the reason for

"It has been a very difficult decision to leave my position as the
bowling coach of the Australian cricket team, a job I have thoroughly
enjoyed since beginning 12 months ago," McDermott said in a statement.

"However, the team's schedule is a particularly busy one and after
looking at the upcoming touring demands, I felt this to be the right
decision from a personal and professional point of view.

"It has been a great honour to work with our most exciting bowlers over this period and we have achieved much success.

"The progression of particular players and the improvement of depth
in Australian bowling stocks has been the result of much hard work from
both sides and is something I am particularly proud of."

McDermott said he will continue to work at Cricket Australia's centre
of excellence and was not ruling out being involved with the Australian
cricket team in the future.

Head coach Mickey Arthur admitted the 47-year-old would be difficult to replace.

"Craig has taken our fast bowlers to another level and his skills and
experience will be sorely missed around the group," Arthur said.
"However, we completely understand and respect Craig's decision."
