Salford Red Devils have confirmed that Head Coach Ian Watson has parted company with the club with immediate effect.

Watson took the reins at the AJ Bell Stadium back in 2014 joining as an Assistant Coach from local rivals Swinton Lions. He would become the club’s Head Coach in 2015.

The former Red Devils half-back guided Salford to their first-ever Betfred Super League Grand Final in 2019 before also taking the club to Wembley for the first time in 51 years for the 2020 Coral Challenge Cup Final.

Salford have confirmed that they have begun the recruitment process for a new Head Coach.
