Aviva Premiership Rugby Club have released a statement confirming that former Director of Rugby Bryan Redpath has accepted the role of head coach.

Sale Sharks have yet to win a match in the Premiership which has led to the effective demotion of Redpath to head coach.

The statement says, "We are delighted to announce that Bryan Redpath will be taking on the role of Head Coach of Sale Sharks as from today. His four year contract that commenced this year will stay in force."

"Sale Sharks have formed a Rugby Strategy Management board which will meet regularly to devise and review the long term rugby strategy. This board will be chaired by Brian Kennedy, and consist of the following members: Ian Blackhurst, Steve Diamond, John Mitchell and Bryan Redpath.

"The priority of all the management within Sale Sharks is to get back to winning ways and secure our position in the Premiership. We believe we have the playing and coaching talent and structure to achieve this.

"Beyond this we must plan medium and long term to compete at the top of the game and this will be the remit of the strategy board. "
