Rory Best has landed his first official coaching role as he makes a rather unexpected switch to Major League Rugby.
The former Ireland captain will work alongside former Ulster assistant coach Allen Clarke and Pate Tuilevuka, who moves from Director of Rugby to become interim head coach.
A statement issued by the Seawolves said Best and Clarke had been recruited “to bolster Seattle’s technical and high-performance skills”.
Best retired from playing in 2019. The 124-times capped ex-Ireland hooker called time on his professional playing days after the Rugby World Cup in Japan.
