Championship club close to appointing new Head Coach

Bradford Bulls announced recently that they had parted company with head coach Mark Dunning by mutual consent with immediate effect.

CEO Jason Hirst said: “We would like to thank Mark for his commitment and service to the club and it is disappointing that results have not reflected the hard work and commitment that he has undoubtedly shown. He leaves with our very best wishes.”

Mark Dunning said: “Having been at the club 10 years it has been a honour and privilege to lead the club as head coach. I would like to thank the performance staff, some often going above and beyond, and the players and I wish all concerned the very best for the future. To the fans who have followed the club far and wide, loud and proud, I thank you and hope you get the success you badly crave.”

Assistant Coach Lee Greenwood has taken over on an interim basis while the club searched for a new head coach.

Serious About Rugby League understands that the Bulls are set to make a decision in the next 48 hours on who will replace Dunning having interviewed a number of candidates.

Who they will select to take this giant of a club forward remains unclear.
