Marshall named Red Devils head coach
Salford Red Devils are delighted to announce the appointment of Richard Marshall as head coach.
Marshall joins from St Helens, where he was part of consecutive Betfred Super League Grand Final victories, as assistant to two different head coaches.
Marshall said: “I’m really excited about joining the Club. I’ve been really impressed by the organisation and everyone I’ve met.
“The ambition of the Club aligns with my own, which makes this a perfect role for me.
“I learned a lot in recent years, from Justin Holbrook and Kristian Woolf at St Helens and as a head coach in my own right, so I think I’ve got the skills necessary to be successful.
“Now, I can’t wait to meet all the players and get stuck into preseason.”
The 45-year-old has also been assistant coach at Warrington Wolves and received plaudits during his time as a head coach in the Championship, after taking part-timers Halifax to three top-four finishes.
Director of rugby and operations Ian Blease said: “Richard has really impressed us, and it’s already clear that he has bought into the vision of the Club.
“He joins us from a successful club with a winning culture, having won two consecutive grand finals during his time at St Helens.
“While he was a head coach, he also proved his ability to build a team and we’re looking forward to seeing what he can achieve with us.”
