Brian McDermott leaves coaching role, sparking rumours of Super League move

Brian McDermott has left Oldham as coaching consultant.

The former Leeds Rhinos head coach, who won multiple Grand Final and Challenge Cup titles in his time at Headingley, had been part of the Oldham set-up since June, working with Brendan Sheridan.

McDermott didn’t exactly inspire a difference in the Roughyeds’ side, with Oldham on the receiving end of nine losses and one draw.

However, the 51-year-old praised the Oldham players greatly.

“The players were unbelievably good in those terms,” McDermott said.

“We dropped our standards a little bit against Sheffield and Widnes away, but other than that, the lads have been tremendous in terms of sheer effort.

“They came to training straight from full-time jobs and worked as hard and showed as much commitment as any group I have ever worked with.

“We didn’t have the armoury to break down opponents as often as we needed to, but in terms of hard work and defence these men have been fantastic.

“It has been a humbling and an eye-opening experience for me, I can tell you.”

Rumours of a Super League return have surfaced for most of the 2021 season, with Salford now desiring a new head coach following the departure of Richard Marshall.
