Worcester Warriors have confirmed that Richard Hill has left his role as head coach at Sixways with immediate effect.

Former England international Hill has been in charge at Warriors for the last three seasons and led the club to promotion to the Premiership in 2011.

However, following the club’s recent run of form, Bill Bolsover CBE, the club’s chairman of its Rugby Committee, has announced that Hill will leave the club.

The existing coaching team at Worcester Warriors and the club’s Rugby Operations Director Corin Palmer will now take charge of senior team matters for the last two league games of the season against Harlequins on Saturday and London Welsh on Saturday, May 4.

Bill Bolsover said: “Richard was brought into Worcester Warriors to get us promoted back to the Premiership, which he successfully achieved. We then wanted to consolidate our position amongst the elite before breaking out of the bottom four.

“Despite all his hard work, effort, attention to detail and honesty, we have not continued the forward momentum. On behalf of everyone at Worcester Warriors, I would like to put on record our thanks and appreciation to Richard and we wish him well for the future.”

Dean Ryan, who served as Scotland's forwards coach during the Six Nations, has been linked with the club.
