Otago Cricket Chief Executive Mike Coggan said King decided it appropriate he step down from the role even as the association worked through a thorough Volts season review process.

"Nathan has been an outstanding servant of Otago Cricket working previously as a development officer and recently as the Volts assistant coach, " said Mr Coggan

"I certainly do understand just how difficult this decision has been for him"

In a brief statement, King said his resignation "was in the best interests of both Otago Cricket and his family. I have throughly enjoyed the challenging but also rewarding aspects of coaching the Otago Volts. I would like to thank Otago Cricket for the opportunity and wish them, along with all the players the very best for the future. Coaching is still something I remain very passionate about and would love to stay involved in some capacity in the future.
