Omar Mouneimne has left Bristol Bears by mutual consent, the club has confirmed.
The Defence Coach spent two years at Ashton Gate having arrived in July 2020, helping the Bears to a maiden Challenge Cup title and a first placed finish in the Gallagher Premiership in 2021.
Chairman Chris Booy said: “Omar has added real value with his contribution to the team and he leaves for the next chapter in his career with the support of the organisation.
“Omar is a respected member of our coaching set up. It’s now the right time for him to take on a new challenge and he departs with our best wishes.”
Mouneimne added: “I’m proud to have been able to play my role in the Bears journey and there have been many highlights along the way, including major silverware and conceding the second fewest points and tries last season.
“I’d like to thank the players and staff for my time in the West Country and making me and my family so welcome. I’m excited about what lies ahead and I’m relishing the next challenge that awaits.”
