John Muldoon is reportedly set to join Pat Lam’s coaching ticket at Bristol next season, reports The Irish Times.
The 35-year-old flanker retires this summer after 15 seasons with his native province.
Muldoon could be a replacement for Mark Bakewell, who takes over as Leicester forwards coach under former Leinster supremo Matt O’Connor.
Leicester had previously approached Paul O’Connell but he turned down the position to remain working with the Munster Academy, while also accepting a formal role with the Ireland under-20s this season.
The Lam coach to Muldoon captain partnership proved the most successful in Connacht history as the province captured the Pro 12 title when beating Leinster in the 2016 final at Murrayfield.
