Mcrae tempted by Hull of a come­back


Midweek Sport - - TV GUIDE -

FOR­MER Hull head coach Shaun McRae is to re­turn to the club next month when Richard Agar leaves his post.

Agar, who has been head coach of the Black and Whites since May 2008, will see out the Su­per League sea­son be­fore leav­ing to take up an­other ap­point­ment – be­lieved to be at Wake­field.

McRae, who was head coach at Hull from 2000 to 2004, will be­come the club’s di­rec­tor of rugby and help choose Agar’s suc­ces­sor.

That is ex­pected to be Aus­tralian Peter Gen­tle, cur­rently as­sis­tant to Tim Sheens with both Wests Tigers and Aus­tralia. Gen­tle re­jected the chance to take over as Sal­ford coach ear­lier this year.

The de­par­ture of Agar comes six weeks after the club was taken over by Hull City’s Adam Pear­son.

McRae, who re­cently left his post at Sal­ford due to ill health, said: “I am de­lighted to be re­turn­ing to Hull FC and I am hon­oured to be part of the ex­cit­ing times that lie ahead.”
