According to reports, the Jamaican will take over from Englishman Richard Pybus, who opted not to renew his contract with the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB).

Pybus will remain for a short time, to facilitate Adams’ rise to the position.

In October, Adams left his role as head coach of Kent after five seasons.

The 48-year-old, who played 54 Tests and 127 One-Day Internationals (ODIs), joined the club before the start of the 2012 campaign.

Kent finished second in Division Two of the County Championship this year, missing out on promotion.
