Wales Coach Rob Howley Interviews For Surprise Irish Coaching Role

Exodus.

Warren Gatland will step down as head coach of Wales after the Rugby World Cup, with his entire coaching ticket set to follow him out the door.

Shaun Edwards recently announced he turned down an offer to stay, with the defence coach strongly linked to a role with the French national team.

Forwards coach Robin McBryde meanwhile will be in Ireland next season, after he accepted a role with European champions Leinster. And it appears attack coach Rob Howley could be set to follow him to the Emerald Isle.

According to The42, Howley is in the frame to join Munster as their new attack coach, with head coach Johann van Graan last week revealing they’re looking to make an addition in that area.

The report goes as far as saying he has met with the southern province as they look to bring in some experience to work alongside Felix Jones in attack.

Howley has won multiple Six Nations with Wales and coached the Lions on two occasions. Could he be the man to sort out Munster’s attack?
