Graham quits Force
20 Apr 2012
Richard Graham has resigned as head coach of the Force in the middle of the season.
On Monday, Graham announced that he would be moving to the Reds ahead of the 2013 season but was still committed to seeing out the current season with the Force. On Friday, however, Australian media reported that Graham has left the Force and is likely to be replaced by former league player Phil Blake.
The Force have a bye this weekend but will host the Stormers in Perth next week. The players are reportedly shocked with Graham’s decision to abandon them in the middle of the season.
Graham is set to assume the head coaching duties at the Reds next season, while Ewen McKenzie will move into a director of coaching role.
