Nottinghamshire head coach Peter Moores has signed a new three-year contract with the county, amid interest from Pakistan.
Moores had been linked with the vacant Pakistan coach role, following Misbah-ul-Haq's decision to step down.
According to ESPNcricinfo, Moores was one of the PCB's preferred options, but the 58-year-old has committed to Nottinghamshire.
Moores, who had two spells in charge of England, will now continue at Trent Bridge until at least 2024.
He first took over at Nottinghamshire in 2017 and has led the club to three white-ball trophies during his tenure.
Moores said: "Being Head Coach of Nottinghamshire is a privilege. Representing a club like ours is about making a contribution to something bigger than yourself and trying to take it to a better place than you found it.
"With the trophies and hard-fought matches won, with the friendships formed and with seeing players get better, we’re making memories along the way.
"The members and supporters at Trent Bridge are knowledgeable, passionate people who rightly demand total commitment from those who represent their club, and that will continue to be my goal for as long as I’m here."
Director of Cricket Mick Newell added: "We have been a force in the limited overs game throughout Pete’s time in charge and, during the past couple of seasons, we have seen a young side make significant progress in the County Championship as well.
"The three white-ball trophies the club has won, as well as the consistency shown in qualifying for the latter stages, constitutes a record that’s as good as anyone’s in the county game.
"Meanwhile, strides were made during the shortened 2020 season to make us more competitive in red-ball cricket and, this year, we have been back to where we want to be in terms of our performances in the First-Class game.
"Pete’s presence within our setup has been a key factor in terms of our recruitment because people want to work with him, and he has also successfully committed to bringing through home grown players with the likes of Lyndon James, Liam Patterson-White and Joey Evison all set to play a big part for the club long into the future."
