Tim Sheens has resigned from his role as Widnes head coach, the Vikings have confirmed.
The Australian was appointed on a two-year deal at the start of the 2020 season, and led the club to five wins from their first seven games before the season was voided due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
He has now, however, chosen to leave his role with the Vikings.
In a statement on their official club website, Widnes said: “The club would like to place on record their thanks to Tim for his efforts during his time at the Vikings, and wish him all the best in his future endeavours.
“As a club, we are confident that the role of Head Coach at this prestigious club will attract a high level of interest, especially given the quality of the squad already assembled for 2021 and our loyal and passionate fan base.
“We will now take the necessary time needed to appoint a successor to Tim who can build upon the foundations and lead the club successfully into the future.”
