Radio Wales announced yesterday that Danny Wilson (Cardiff Blues) was leaving at the end of the season to take up a coaching position alongside Dai Young at Wasps

Could be ,  but same was said when we lost Glenn Delaney to London Irish and Martin Haag to the RFU.  Must also be quite attractive to up and coming coaches if they look at where the last 3 incumbents have gone .  I think Nottingham has become a great staging post for up and coming talent both on the playing side and for coaches. 

I hope am not putting my foot in it and we get relegated !!!!!!!

Interesting another senior member of Nottingham Rugby's Personnel off to Wasps.

Matt Everard, now Constello.
 
Similar to when Lee Blackett left Roth to Wasps. From Head Coach to Just Backs.
 
Interesting how coaches leave lead coach roles to become assistants at biggest organisations.

Matt signed for Wasps in 2011 before coming to Nottingham , he is at the moment still listed as a player and Academy Head Coach at Nottingham but  has a role at Wasps as well which may develop in to a full time role in the future

This is a real shame for Nottingham as he is clearly a very talented coach. I would love to have seen him give it a few more seasons so that ho could really build something here.
However it is not to be and our loss is very much Wasps gain. I wish him all the best for the future and thank him for making such a good team out of what was mostly a group of kids in very short time.
Good luck Ian.
King is dead, I wonder who the new king will be? Shame we cant afford Mr Mallinder :)
If only Nottingham was in Wales it would be perfect.

Nottingham has always been a spring board club, we have sent so much talent up the line over the last decade or so it beggars belief.
I think it is a good thing, but what a team we would have if we could put some of them back together.
In the end tier 2 clubs should expect their players and coaches to be scrutinised by senior clubs both here and abroad.
I would love it if we could attract Mr Hammond back from Hong Kong to coach the team.

True - and it applies to many clubs in the Championship. The RFU can't see the value, though, and don't think it's worth supporting.

Speaking of Lee Blackett & Wasps, I understand he is In contention for the top job at Northampton.

It is not commonly known that a Yorkshireman invented the original cure for sea sickness.....they leant over the side of the boat with a five pound note in their mouth.

Blackett to Northampton would be perceived as a big gamble, but I think it might be an inspired choice.

Never judge a man until you've walked a mile in his shoes, after that who cares? he's a mile away and you have his shoes!

From the Nottingham website..

Nottingham Rugby are delighted to announce the appointment of current first team coach Neil Fowkes, as the club’s new head coach, from the end of the current season.

Fowkes needs no introduction to the Nottingham faithful, with the locally-born, 37 year-old, having been part of the club, both as a player and a coach, since 1987.

Moving through the club’s junior ranks at Ireland Avenue, after joining as an Under-7 minis player, Neil went on to make 210 first team appearances for the club, at loose head prop, across 12 years, between 1999 and 2011. He was also part of the Green and Whites squad, which achieved promotion to National Division One, now known as the Championship, during the 2003/04 season.

On retiring from playing, Fowkes moved straight into a coaching role with Nottingham, working alongside both Glenn Delaney and Martin Haag, and he will now take over the reins from current head coach Ian Costello, at the end of the 2017/18 campaign, with Costello moving to a senior coaching role at Premiership side Wasps.

Clearly pleased to have been given the opportunity to take charge of the club he has been part of for most of his life, a proud Fowkes said:

“It’s an absolute privilege to have been selected to do the job at Nottingham. It’s a club that’s so close to my heart and I’m very proud to have got that across the line.

“First and foremost, my job here is to support the current head coach Ian Costello as much as possible and we’re focusing on London Scottish this weekend, and the Championship, and the remaining B&I Cup games. Obviously, with a change of coach, there’s a slight change of style in terms of personality but we’re very closely aligned at the club and we just want to make sure the continuity is there and were still moving in the same upward trajectory.”
