Goldman Sachs Hires England Rugby Coach Eddie Jones

Eddie Jones is to join the advisory board of Goldman Sachs in Tokyo.

The appointment of Mr Jones by Goldman Sachs comes just a week after the 55-year-old Australian was selected as the next head coach of England — a team in need of resuscitation after failing to progress from the group stages of the same tournament.

The roles at both Goldman and England, he said, represented “a once in a lifetime opportunity”.

The departure of Mr Jones to England will leave Japan without his expertise as it prepares to host the 2019 Rugby World Cup — an event whose arrangements have been thrown into confusion by a political spat over the design and finances of Japan’s new national stadium.
