Bradley to leave Edinburgh

Edinburgh Rugby are searching for a new head coach after informing Michael Bradley they will not renew his contract at the end of the season.

The Murrayfield club have also revealed that defence coach Billy McGinty has already resigned his post.

Bradley will continue his role until his contract ends in May and will share the defensive duties with forwards coach, Neil Back.

Corkman Bradley said: “It’s been an honour to be Edinburgh Rugby head coach and I’d like to thank my fellow coaches, management team, players, staff, fans and sponsors for their support these past two years.

“The undoubted highlight of my two years was the joy on the faces of all connected with Edinburgh Rugby when the final whistle went when we overcame Toulouse in last year’s quarter-final of the Heineken Cup at Murrayfield.”

The decision not to renew Bradley’s deal has come as little surprise following a wretched season. Edinburgh lost all six of their Heineken Cup matches and currently sit fourth from bottom in the RaboDirect Pro12.
