The Waratahs have confirmed that coach Daryl Gibson has resigned after four seasons in charge of the Sydney-based Vodacom Super Rugby side.
In total, it concludes a seven-year involvement with rugby in New South Wales for Gibson, who took over as head coach in 2016, following a three-year stint as an assistant to Michael Cheika.
Gibson said that the decision to leave was made after careful consideration and in the best interest of the team moving forward.
‘I’ve been incredibly invested in this team and NSW Rugby for the past seven years. It wasn’t an easy decision [to leave] but one that I think is in the best interest of the team, myself and my family.
‘I’m proud to have served as head coach for that period, this is now a wonderful opportunity for someone to bring the next generation of young players through and really own that process for the next three to four years.’
