Sir Ian McGeechan, the Director of Rugby of the Aviva Premiership side Bath Rugby will be leaving the club at the end of the current season after the expiry of his current two year contract with the club after it was decided by the club management that they would not offer a contract extension to their boss.
The Recreation Ground club has been suffering from extremely erratic form throughout the entire season, currently languishing in 8th place in the Aviva Premiership table with almost no hope of making the playoffs after narrowly missing out on the playoff spot last season.
To make matters even worse, they suffered a huge defeat with a score of 26-6 at home at the hands of the Saracens which leaves them struggling to even qualify for the Heineken Cup, which would have meant at least some sort of success for Bath Rugby considering the kind of form that they have suffered throughout the season.
Moreover, the coaching staff even went to the extent of apologizing to the fans for putting up such an abject display, which is almost being considered as humiliating.
Bruce Craig, the multimillionaire owner of the club put in lots of money into the club to see it progress through and win a European competition but the way they exited the Heineken Cup from the pool stage is extremely disappointing for the owner. The club is said to me making extremely good progress in identifying a successor for Sir Ian McGeechan and are on their way to appointing him by the end of the season.
But whoever comes in to take charge at Bath Rugby will not have it easy considering the fact that the team is full of players who have lost their touch and needs rebuilding from the very start.
