Former Springbok assistant coach Alan Solomons will take over from Gary Gold as the Worcester Warriors’ new director of rugby.
Solomons, who has assisted Gold at the club since October, signed a two-and-a-half-year deal.
‘I have enjoyed my time at the Warriors since day one and it has become clear that the club has masses of potential to be successful in the long-term,’ said Solomons.
‘I am hugely excited about being given the opportunity to lead this club and I am looking forward to continuing the hard work to ensure we can build for the future, move up the Premiership table and give the supporters the success they deserve.’
Gold will be leaving to take up a job with the USA national team.
‘I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Sixways,’ he said. ‘I feel the club has taken steps forward over the last year and has the foundations to ultimately be successful. I wish all the players and staff the best of luck in the future.’
