Australian coach Darren Lehmann is feeling the heat at the moment as Australia have struggled to five consecutive Test defeats, although 'Boof' is trying to do something about it.

He's trying to become a better coach.

Those associated with the Australian cricket team have been put under pressure recently - none more so than Rod Marsh who stepped down as Chairman of Selectors following the Hobart Test - and Lehmann is certainly feeling the pinch as well.

The former Test batsman turned to Cricket Australia's high-performance manager Pat Howard for advice, as the coach is looking to save Australia's summer.

"This is a great challenge for his coaching, I think he's in uncharted territory for him as well and we've talked about that. This is a great chance for him to reinvent," Howard said in Hobart during the second Test.

Lehmann took note of those comments, and is taking them on board as he tries to become a better mentor.

"I was going to wear a suit the next day to training," Lehmann joked on SA radio station FIVEaa.

"That's the first thing I asked - what do you mean by that?

"It's about challenging myself to become a better coach.

"You're always learning as a coach. I'm still learning. I'm only a young coach. I'm always learning along the way and trying to get better by making mistakes.

"You don't want to make too many obviously, but you've got to get better.

"He's my boss and we need to get results," Lehmann added.

The coach saw his contract extended to 2019 earlier this year to allow him to coach in the next World Cup and Australia's tour of England that year.

But that's the furthest thing on Lehmann's mind right now, as his sole focus is to pick up a badly beaten and bruised Test side and have them perform in Adelaide on Thursday.

"I've never seen a side so hurt after Hobart, an Australian side. We've got to pick them up, get them positive," he said.

The 46-year-old made six changes for the day-night Test which including giving four players a chance at making their debut, as Lehmann wants to look to the future, but also wants things done now.

"Take a hunch on a few I suppose and see how they go. We've got to build towards a side that's going to play well for five or six years," he said.

"We've (also) got to stop the rot now."
