Head coach of Indian hockey team Roelant Oltmans has been sacked from his position by Hockey India on Saturday. Oltmans, who was initially appointed as a High-Performance manager in 2013, became the head coach after Paul Van Ass left controversially in 2015.

The decision was taken during the three-day meeting of the Hockey India High Performance and Development Committee, which concluded on Saturday.

Further, current High Performance Director, David John will take charge  in the interim till a suitable replacement is found.
