Former Ulster Coach Lands Aviva Premiership Role

Back in business.

Worcester Warriors have today confirmed that former Ulster head coach Neil Doak will move to the club in the summer as their new attack & backs coach on a two-year contract.

The 45-year-old Ulsterman will be the second new addition to the coaching team ahead of the 2018/19 campaign, following the news last month that Rory Duncan will move to Sixways as Head Coach from the Cheetahs.

Doak was appointed as Head Coach of Ulster Rugby in October 2014 and enjoyed a 23-year association with the province. As a player, the former scrumhalf made his debut for Ulster in 1995 and went on to make 85 appearances for them before retiring from the game in 2005.

Warriors Director of Rugby Alan Solomons said:

“Neil played under me during my time at Ulster. He was an outstanding scrum-half with an excellent feel for the game.

“As I thought, he has developed into a first rate coach and he will add huge value to our attack and backline.”

Doak added:

“There are some fantastic backs at Worcester and I can’t wait to link up with them and Alan Solomons.

“The Club has huge potential and hopefully I can help be a part of taking the Club up the Premiership table.”
