Salford appoint Saints assistant

Salford Red Devils have announced the appointment of Richard Marshall as head coach.

Marshall joins from St Helens, where he was part of consecutive Super League Grand Final victories, as assistant to two different head coaches.

Marshall said: “I’m really excited about joining the Club. I’ve been really impressed by the organisation and everyone I’ve met.

“The ambition of the Club aligns with my own, which makes this a perfect role for me.

“I learned a lot in recent years, from Justin Holbrook and Kristian Woolf at St Helens and as a head coach in my own right, so I think I’ve got the skills necessary to be successful.”

Director of rugby and operations Ian Blease added: “Richard has really impressed us, and it’s already clear that he has bought into the vision of the Club.

“He joins us from a successful club with a winning culture, having won two consecutive grand finals during his time at St Helens.

“While he was a head coach, he also proved his ability to build a team and we’re looking forward to seeing what he can achieve with us.”
