Yorkshire Carnegie appoint Redpath

Former Gloucester and Sale boss Bryan Redpath has been appointed as the new head coach of Greene King IPA Championship club Yorkshire Carnegie on a two-year contract.

The 44-year-old former Scotland international will join the Leeds club with immediate effect, 24 hours after leaving Sale, and becomes their fourth head coach in a year following the departures of James Lowes, Gary Mercer and Tommy McGee.

Executive president Sir Ian McGeechan, who has been in temporary charge, said: "We are delighted to have secured a coach of the calibre of Bryan for Yorkshire Carnegie.

"He is someone I have known well for many years and I can see that the same drive and passion he had as a player has been carried through into his coaching career."

Redpath said: "I am excited about the massive opportunity and challenge we have here at Yorkshire Carnegie.

"There is a clear vision for what the club wants to do over the next few years and I want to be part of that project."
