Mike Hesson has announced his resignation as coach of New Zealand after a tenure of six years.

The 43-year-old, who was appointed to the role in 2012, is to leave the job on 31 July. He said in a statement he wanted to spend more time with his family and felt he could not commit to the job for another 12 months.

“This job requires 100% commitment and is all consuming,” Hesson said. “I know what’s required over the next 12 months, but if I’m honest, I don’t feel I have the capacity to give the job what it deserves.”

Under Hesson, New Zealand reached the 2015 World Cup final and won 21 of 53 Tests, 65 of 119 one-day internationals and 30 of 59 Twenty20 matches.
