Nottinghamshire and Yorkshire are among the latest counties to reveal new coaching appointments ahead of the 2014 county season.

Andy Pick has been appointed as Nottinghamshire's bowling coach and Paul Franks the second eleven captain while former England spinner Richard Dawson is to take up a role as Yorkshire's second eleven coach.

Following a playing career at Trent Bridge, Pick took up coaching roles with Canada, USA, England Under-19s and the ICC.

Franks, who has been on the Nottinghamshire staff since 1996, will lead the second eleven while working towards his ECB Level Four coaching qualification.

At Headingley, Dawson, who also played for Gloucestershire and Northamptonshire, takes on the role vacated by Paul Farbrace, who took over as Sri Lanka's head coach earlier this year.

Elsewhere, Sussex captain Michael has signed a new one-year extension to his contract which will see him remain at Hove until the end of the 2015 season.

He has been awarded a testimonial in 2014 and has now played more than 400 representative matches for Sussex as well as playing 28 One-Day Internationals and 14 Twenty20 Internationals.

"I’m really happy to have extended my contract with Sussex. It's really important that we keep progressing forward and challenging on all fronts," Yardy said.

"My aim is to put in match-winning performances to contribute towards that."
