Two Otago sporting stars who used to walk the playing fields are now going back to school to guide the next generation.

Former Otago cricket captain and Black Cap Craig Cumming has started as director of sport at Otago Boys' High School.

Cumming played for Otago for many years and also played 11 tests and 13 one-day internationals for New Zealand. He has coached cricket sides since retiring in 2012, and is also a broadcaster.

Former Otago inside back Glenn Dickson has been appointed as director of sport at King's High School.

Dickson played rugby for Pirates and 46 games for Otago.

He made his debut for the province in the final game of 2008 and then went overseas after the 2012 season.

Dickson has been playing and coaching rugby in Weston-super-Mare, near Bristol in England, for the past few years.

He is an old boy of King's and will start his job early next term.

He replaces Kane Jury, who left to pursue rugby coaching opportunities overseas.
