Ex-Springbok assistant coach Gary Gold will take up the position as Director of Rugby at Bath as part of a restructuring of the club’s coaching staff.

Former Springbok assistant coach Gary Gold will take up the position as Director of Rugby at Bath as part of a restructuring of the Premiership club’s coaching staff.

Former England defence coach Mike Ford will take over from Gold as head coach.

"While we felt that the dynamic last season worked nicely, Gary Gold was just stretched too thin when all of his duties were considered," read a Bath statement.

"So, Gary will now become the Director of Rugby, allowing him more time to concentrate on recruitment, wage cap management, the overseeing of the Medical and Strength and Conditioning departments as well as, of course, the rugby department, including the Academy.

“Mike Ford will become head coach and will assume responsibility for the day to day preparation of the first team, while Neal Hatley and Toby Booth will continue as first team coaches.”
