Open question, but I could give a brilliant interview with a compelling vision for the English test team, how is this a good way to hire a coach, against someone who has a full CV as a successful test match cricket coach.
I am really not sure that is how you judge a good cricket coach.

I hope McCullum is a success but this is an absolutely moronic reason to choose someone as an elite international sports coach. Wasn't this the same rationale for the decision to choose Silverwood over Kirsten last time round as well?

Indeed yes. The ECB had form.

I also agree I really want McCullum and Stokes to lead a renaissance in English test cricket.
But we needed Kirsten first and then McCullum in my view.

Interviewing is a two-way street though.  We don't know whether Gary Kirsten turned it down, or whether there were other mitigating factors that gave McCullum the role over Kirsten, such as personal demands or needs taht cannot be acoomodated.

The swing for the hills mentality for batting was only for himself. He knew he played his best cricket when he batted like that. He's good at letting players be themselves and embraces that. Obviously his philosophy is geared towards positive cricket but that doesn't mean playing T20 in test matches. He will be great for your dressing room. He will bring a team first attitude where ego's get put aside for the betterment of the team goals. Great appointment.

Very interesting how us non-English people are more excited about this than the England supporters. I second this. It is a fantastic appointment and great for both English cricket, as well as the game in general

We might feel the same if it was our team and a left field appointment happened. I know NZ would probably be the same if a McCullum type rugby player took over the All Blacks. I think it's more of a cautious, optimistic response from the English fans at the moment who are also quietly excited for what could happen.

Thats spot on because we are used to the ECB rarely taking risks with the top job or the coaches. I think myself its a risk but our performances have been poor for the last couple of years so something needed to change.

The emphasis on team and no dickheads has worked under McCullum and Williamson. Both are tough but Williamson especially is very low key and we see a very good side.

One thing we have been promised in the press is more straight talking under the new Captain and coach.

Thats a good start and I hope we get it.

Excited to see what Mccullum brings to the table. Bold decision but good to see courage from Key to try drastic changes which I feel are needed.

Matthew Mott now favourite for the white ball job.

Very cunning from Rob Key, help the ladies team out at the same time by removing the oppo's coach.

Not sure, I heard that Collingwood has been given the white balk job.

Edit... Seems I could be wrong... Happens occasionally.
