Toulon set to announce Mike Ford as first-team coach

  • Mike Ford is set to be named first-team coach of three-time European champions Toulon
  • The former Bath boss has worked as an assistant coach for both England and Ireland
  • Ford led Bath to the Premiership final in 2015
French giants Toulon have recruited former Bath Director of Rugby Mike Ford in an attempt to improve their struggling season.

The Daily Mail reports Ford will start his new job on Monday four months after Bath sacked him. Ford reportedly met with Toulon owner Mourad Boudjellal and head coach Diego Dominguez last Wednesday where he apparently made a good impression.

Toulon have been heavily criticised by Boudjellal this season after losing three of their first five games. They currently sit eighth on the standings and are seven points behind leaders Clermont

Reports suggest Ford will be given extensive first-team responsibilities with regards to attack, defence and overall game-plan.
