Ian Watson parts ways with Salford Red Devils with immediate effect

Challenge Cup runners-up Salford are looking for a new coach after announcing the sudden departure of Ian Watson.

The Red Devils say Watson, who has been at the club since 2014, has left them with immediate effect after being approached by another Betfred Super League club.

The news comes just a fortnight after Watson rejected an approach from Hull and pledged to see out his Salford contract, which was due to run to the end of 2022.

“The club were surprised and disappointed by Watson’s decision yesterday, following his previous statements of intent for the coming season, but understand his desire to continue his development through the experience of a new environment,” a statement said.
