Scotland Rugby League Head Coach Resigns
Written by RockSport on December 28, 2017
Steve McCormack has resigned from his position as head coach of Scotland’s rugby league side.
McCormack, 44, leaves after 13 years in the role, having led the national side in three World Cups.
The Wigan assistant coach also guided the Scots to their maiden appearance in the Four Nations in 2016, securing a famous draw with New Zealand.
“It has been a massive privilege to coach the Scotland national team for so long,” McCormack said.
“To compete in three World Cups, many European Championships and a Four Nations competition is something that I am immensely proud of.
“What we have achieved over 14 international campaigns has been fantastic and there are so many highlights. I can pick from a World Cup quarter-final, a European Championship title, and a historic draw against New Zealand in the Four Nations.”
McCormack took over as Scotland head coach in 2004 and secured the first World Cup victory in the country’s history against Fiji in 2008.
