Iestyn Harris named Salford Red Devils coach

Salford Red Devils confirm the appointment of Iestyn Harris as the new head coach of the Super League club.

Salford Red Devils have confirmed that Iestyn Harris is the new head coach of the Super League club.

Harris takes over from Brian Noble, who was told last week that he would be replaced by the 37-year-old Welshman.

Noble suggested over the weekend that he was receiving legal advice following the surprise shake-up.

The former Great Britain coach, who was expected to recruit Harris as part of his backroom staff, has been offered a directorial role at the AJ Bell Stadium.

"Iestyn started work in earnest this morning," chief executive Martin Vickers is quoted as saying by Sky Sports News. "Along with (chairman) Marwan Koukash, he addressed the whole squad before the start of training."

Harris is also the coach of the Welsh national team.
