O’Sullivan moving on

USA COACH Eddie O’Sullivan has decided not to re-apply for his job as he wants to stay closer to home in Europe.

The Irishman steps aside after two years mentoring the Eagles.

“On behalf of USA Rugby, I'd like to thank Eddie for his time here and I think the Eagles' performance at the Rugby World Cup speaks volumes about him and the way he prepared the team,” says USA Rugby chief executive Nigel Melville.

O’Sullivan took over as USA coach in 2009, after leading Ireland through one of its most successful periods in its history.

It was his second foray into American rugby, as he had served as the team’s assistant coach at the 1999 World Cup.

At this year’s RWC, the team beat Russia and was also competitive in its other pool matches against Ireland and Italy.
