The incumbent PHF president Akhtar Rasool was the head coach of the Pakistan team which had badly flopped in the Champions League qualifiers and the Asia Cup.
Akhtar has now been elected as the PHF president despite his poor record as head coach and has recently been joined by another set of Olympians including former captain Islahuddin and Shahnaz Sheikh and a few others on key posts in the PHF.

Pakistan's hockey coach Akhtar Rasool resigns over failures
LAHORE, Sept 24: Pakistan hockey team's head coach and manager Akhtar Rasool resigned from his post on Tuesday amid reports that he is likely to contest the November elections for the President, Pakistan Hockey Federation.
Dawn learnt on Tuesdsay that the real reason behind Akhtar's resignation is not the national team's poor show in international hockey of late - where they failed to qualify for the 2014 World Cup - but the former full back was in fact preparing to contest the polls for the top PHF post.
There are also reports that the minister for Inter-provincial Coordination Riaz Pirzada has suggested to the prime minister to impose ad hoc on the PHF.
However, Akhtar and his lobby in the parliament have opposed the move as they are keen to have fresh PHF elections conducted in November.
Sources in the PHF said Akhtar and the incumbent PHF secretary Rana Mujahid have bright chances of getting elected as the PHF president and secretary respectively since they had also recently succeeded in appointing federal minister Pervaiz Rashid as the election commissioner.
Wasim once again announced his retirement after the 2012 London Games but Akhtar as head coach convinced him to withdraw his decision.

The breakthrough regarding the hitherto hockey dissidents' willingness to join forces with the PHF came as a result of negotiations recently launched by the three-member conciliatory committee constituted last month by PHF president Akhtar Rasool.
However, when Akhtar took over as PHF president he started wooing former Olympians particularly those showing resentment against the PHF for failing to take the national game to its due height.
It is instructive to note that Akhtar was elected as new PHF president last December despite opposition of a federal minister who wanted to impose ad hoc on the PHF. However, the minister's summary recommending ad hoc was not accepted by the Prime Minister who is patron of the PHF.
Manzoor Junior while talking to Dawn said that he had already announced his support for Akhtar-led PHF, adding that it was a good decision by the celebrated Olympians to join hands for betterment of the hockey.
He further said that he had also asked the PHF president to strengthen working relationship with the Hockey India so that U-16, U-19, 'A' and seniors teams of both countries could play against each other frequently.
"I believe frequent hockey series between the two countries is the solution to raise standard of Indo-Pak hockey which has recently declined," he said.
