The Boston Irish Wolfhounds are launching a search for a new head coach after Steve Teasdale announced he will be stepping down.

The club released a statement saying, in part, that Teasdale “will be sorely missed on the sidelines but will be staying involved with the club.”

The club is now searching for a new head coach. The job entails running the Super League team, and will manage a team of coaches and other staff.

The coach will be responsible for identifying and developing promising players. Successful candidates must have a track record of success in the Super League or comparable competition and must understand the requirements of running a rugby team in the United States.

Candidates should contact the Boston Irish Wolfhounds at jmaloney@dscicorp.com.

The successful candidate will have some big shoes to fill.

In his eight years with the team, Teasdale posted a won-lost record of 116-32. He led the team to two DI club national titles.

“This record is only magnified by the professionalism and dignity Steve always exhibited off the pitch,” said the club in their statement. “We could not have asked for a better front man for our club.”
