Renegades appointed Klinger as their senior coach ahead of the BBL 9 season. He went on to work with the team till the BBL 10 season.
“I’m grateful for the opportunity that I was given by the Melbourne Renegades. I’d like to thank everyone at the Renegades for their continued support throughout,” Klinger said.
“My new role as Head of Men’s Cricket with CNSW is an extremely exciting position. I’m looking forward to this great opportunity working with Greg Mail and their senior squads, pathways and Big Bash programs,” he added.
Renegades General Manager David Lever said, “On behalf of everyone at the club I’d like to extend our thanks and best wishes to Michael in his new role in New South Wales.”
“Maxy’s dedication to the role, his composure and broader role as an ambassador for the Renegades has been exemplary.
“Despite injuries and unavailability of key players, limited preparation time in his first season and an extended period on the road in his second season, Maxy never looked for excuses and confronted each challenge with the same commitment, character and class that made him such an excellent player for so long,” Lever added.
