Edinburgh have confirmed that Steve Diamond will finish his stint with the club next week.

Former Sale director of rugby Diamond was appointed as lead rugby consultant in March after Mike Blair announced he would be leaving his head coach role at the end of last season.


Diamond has overseen Edinburgh’s pre-season preparations but will make way following the recent arrival of Sean Everitt as senior coach.

An Edinburgh statement read: “Everitt will take charge of the team’s remaining pre-season preparations and will lead the Edinburgh Rugby coaching group into the new season.”

Managing director Douglas Struth added: “We’ve enjoyed having Steve here at Edinburgh Rugby and he’s done a first-class job in overseeing our pre-season programme this off-season.

“Steve has worked closely with Sean since his appointment to ensure a smooth handover process, which has allowed Sean to really hit the ground running with our squad, who are now in block three of pre-season preparations.

“I’d like to put on record our thanks and appreciation for Steve’s hard work, insight, leadership, and expertise since taking on the role back in March.”
