The 47-year-old former England international departs Kingsholm as part of a restructuring under head coach George Skivington.

Defence coach Dom Waldouck has agreed a new contract, while Tim Taylor will assume more responsibility for the attack ahead of the 2022-23 season in his position as assistant backs and academy transition coach.

“I’m proud of what we have achieved over the last two years and of my contribution to the team’s development,” said King, who previously held similar roles at Northampton, Clermont Auvergne and Montpellier.

“I wish George and the team every success going forward.”

Gloucester also announced the departure of Peter Walton, who had been head of the club’s academy since 2019.
