Pat Howard quits as CA continues administrative restructuring

Justin Langer and Pat Howard

Amarfio, CA's general manager of broadcasting, digital media and commercial, is already out the door.

Howard, who has been in the role since 2011, had meant to stay until the Ashes tour of England next year, CA announced last month, a week before releasing the Longstaff review.

The ´Sandpaper-gate´ scandal, where the team was caught using sandpaper to alter the flight of the ball, also cost former coach Darren Lehmann his job and prompted lengthy bans for three players.

Howard, a former Australia rugby union global, had been CA's high performance manager since 2011 and was due to stay until after next year's Ashes series.

New chief executive Kevin Roberts was under pressure to enact cultural change after The Ethics Centre's scathing assessment of CA's corporate culture.

Australia have struggled to recover from the crisis, with its men's teams losing a Test series to Pakistan in the United Arab Emirates and being whitewashed 5-0 by England in a one-day worldwide series.

"It is clear that we need to deepen our relationships with fans, players and the broader cricket community", Roberts said in a statement.

"While Pat Howard has previously made clear his intentions not to renew his contract next year, it has been chose to bring forward his departure which will take effect next week after a handover", CA said in a statement.

Amarfio joined CA in 2012 and oversaw this year's broadcast-rights negotiations which resulted in a record $1.2-billion deal but public outcry over men's ODIs and Twenty20s being shifted off free to air.

The latest departures come after chairman David Peever was forced out last week and former Test captain Mark Taylor quit as a director.

Howard played worldwide rugby union for Australia.
