Dan McFarland has been given the green light to start his role as Ulster's new head coach tomorrow.
McFarland has obtained a release from the Scottish Rugby Union to leave his role as the national side's assistant coach.
It has been four months since the 45-year-old was announced as Jono Gibbes' successor, but The SRU were insistent up to this point that McFarland should serve out a nine-month notice period.
After a compensation payment was negotiated, McFarland looks set to take charge of Ulster just 12 days before their Pro 14 season opener.
Ulster Rugby released a statement confirming the move, saying: "The Irish Rugby Football Union and Scottish Rugby have reached an agreement to allow Dan McFarland to begin working with Ulster Rugby tomorrow, Monday.
"The parties reached a mutual agreement on terms this weekend, allowing Dan to take up his new role as Head Coach of Ulster."
