Long added: “It is with a heavy heart that I leave Harlequins. It has been a very unusual year but I have loved being around the team and the talent across the coaches and playing squad gives me real confidence for Quins in the future.
“I will continue to follow the progress of Harlequins from afar and thank everyone at the Club for their support as I made this difficult decision.”
