Todd Blackadder And Bath To Part Ways
Bath‘s director of rugby, Todd Blackadder, has announced that he will part ways with the Premiership club at the end of the current season.
Blackadder has been granted an early release from his one-year contract extension in order to allow him to join Toshiba in Japan as head coach.
“It’s been an honour and a privilege to lead the Blue, Black and White for the past three years and I’m incredibly proud of what we have achieved,” said Blackadder.
“It might not be silverware but together we have built strong foundations and I leave knowing that the best is absolutely yet to come.
“Bath is a very special club. I’d like to thank everyone, especially the players and all of the staff. I also want to thank our supporters, even in the wind, rain and biting cold they are all at the Rec cheering us on. Thank you.
“Our sights remain set on a top four finish and we are all intent on making this season our best one yet.”
Tarquin McDonald, Bath’s chief executive, thanked Blackadder for his unwavering commitment.
