Gloucester Rugby announce Jonny Bell as Assistant Coach from 2015-16

Gloucester Rugby can today confirm that Jonathan Bell will move from Ulster Rugby in the close season to take on the role of Assistant Coach at Kingsholm.

The 40 year old former Ireland international will take over responsibility for defensive duties from John Muggleton who was appointed on a one-year contract last summer.

Confirming the appointment today, David Humphreys was keen, first and foremost, to pay tribute to John Muggleton.

"It's important that we acknowledge the role that John has played at the club this year. He was the first of the new-look coaching team to arrive in preseason, and got down to work immediately with the squad.

"Our defence has improved significantly over the past few months and has been a key factor in the improved performances this season.

"John has worked extremely hard to develop this group of players and, at the end of the season, he will leave the squad with a much better understanding of the defensive qualities required to be successful.

"However, the most important part of the season is still to come and John's coaching will continue to be crucial as we compete in both the Aviva Premiership and European Rugby Challenge Cup. When leaves the Club at the end of the season, we will wish him every success in his future endeavours."

"I'm delighted that Jonny will be joining Gloucester's coaching team ahead of next season. He's an individual I know very well having played alongside him and then worked with him at Ulster, and the work he has done with the Ulster squad over the past three years speaks for itself.

"I know he's very excited about the challenge ahead and I'm looking forward to welcoming him to Gloucester."
