The West Indies and coach Ottis Gibson have "mutually agreed" to part ways, the West Indies Cricket Board announced Tuesday.

Gibson, 45, has been the team's coach since January 2010 after spending three-plus years as England's bowling coach.

Under Gibson's watch, the West Indies won nine of the 36 Tests it played. The team won the ICC World Twenty20 in 2012, which was the West Indies' first major title since winning the ICC Champions Trophy in 2004.

Team manager Richie Richardson will serve as the West Indies' coach for its series against Bangladesh, which began with a one-day international Wednesday.
