Todd Blackadder today announced that he will leave Bath Rugby at the end of the season. The Director of Rugby has been granted early release from his one-year contract extension in order to allow him to join Toshiba in Japan as Head Coach.
“It’s been an honour and a privilege to lead the Blue, Black and White for the past three years and I'm incredibly proud of what we have achieved. It might not be silverware but together we have built strong foundations and I leave knowing that the best is absolutely yet to come.”
“Bath is a very special Club. I'd like to thank everyone, especially the players and all of the staff. I also want to thank our supporters, even in the wind, rain and biting cold they are all at the Rec cheering us on. Thank you. Our sights remain set on a top four finish and we are all intent on making this season our best one yet,” commented Blackadder following the announcement of his departure.
Todd will depart Bath Rugby following the final game of the season.
