Former Munster Coach Lands Role With Wasps

On the move.

Nottingham Rugby Head Coach Ian Costello will leave the club at the end of the current season to take up a senior coaching role with Premiership side Wasps.

Costello signed a two-year contract with Nottingham in the summer of 2016, joining from PRO14 side Munster, where he spent five years in a variety of senior coaching roles and was credited for aiding the skill development of a number of the provincial giants’ current and rising stars.

Speaking about his time with Nottingham and his decision to move to Wasps, as First Team Coach, Costello said:

“The last eighteen months at Nottingham Rugby have been an incredible experience and right up there as the most enjoyable period of my career to date. Nottingham is a special club made up of exceptional people and I couldn’t speak highly enough of the support me and my family have received on and off the pitch.

“I am extremely excited about moving to Wasps next season and the new set of challenges it brings but right now, my focus remains firmly on the second half of what has been a very positive season to date. We have developed into a squad that is now competitive at the top end of the Championship and I’ve no doubt that with such an excellent group of players, coaches and support staff the club will continue to be successful into the future.”

All the best Ian.
