Former Germany international Oliver Kurtz was scheduled to land in Dhaka on Saturday night to sit for an interview with Bangladesh Hockey Federation for the post of national team head coach.
The hockey federation has been in search for a coach for a long time now and after South African coach Giles Bonnet rejected the offer owing to security reasons, it asked the German Olympian to visit the capital city.
Kurtz, who was the Bangladesh assistant coach from 2009-10, is likely to sit with the BHF today but the German, a convicted drug addict, doesn't have the finest of records off the field, which the hockey federation was previously unaware of.
Kurtz was a member of the gold-medal winning German team in the Barcelona Olympic Games in 1992 but was found positive after a dope test in 1995 during the pre-Olympic qualifiers for Atlanta 1996. He was suspended for two years for taking cocaine.
The German also has a poor record in his recent coaching career as he was sacked from the post of the Oman hockey team due to below-par displays.
