The Sharks have just announced the resignation of assistant coach Brad Macleod-Henderson.

Their statement reads as follows:

“Brad has been involved with us since 2012 initially with the U21’s before joining the senior side in July 2013. He was assistant coach in our last two Super Rugby campaigns looking after the forwards and breakdown and headed-up the Currie Cup campaigns.

We had offered Brad a role within our new structures but he felt that it was time to move on. After playing for The Sharks in the late 1990 and early 2000, he joined us on the back of a 6 year investment banking career and with a Honours in Economics and his MBA nearly completed.

We take this opportunity to wish him and his family the very best moving forward. “

  • Sad for him, but good for the Sharks. I’m sorry but he just is not at the level a team like the Sharks need.

  • I just love the marketing spin…BMH resigns after turning down role offered. What they actually mean is they said u can only stay if you coach the Women’s B Side…he said no thanks and left. Was tough for him during this stint as he always had someone looking over his shoulder etc

  • @SheldonK (Comment 14) : Press releases must only contain facts and I’m sure everything in this release is completely factual.

    Of course, there is always spin – that’s a question of which facts you choose to reveal and which you choose not to. I think it goes without saying that the role Brad was offered was not “Head Coach” or even “Assistant Coach for the Senior Team”. There must surely have been a demotion – perhaps back to age group ranks – that he didn’t feel he was able to accept.

    Does Botes even have a level 1 coaching certificate?

    Unless you use letgo Logic and says Strauli is only staying with the Lions because the Sharks has not made him a offer

    My Prediction is BMH goes to the Kings , Makes a new for himself . In a year or 2 you sharkies cry about letting him go .

  • Start of a new 4-year cycle, young group of players with a splatter of the old guard left.

    Get a new generation coach to instil a new culture amongst the player base, and allow him 3 years to do this.

    Get Robert du Preez on the line and see what his plans are.

Still think that yes BMH had his limitation s but he was also never really entrusted to coach his way and run things as he saw fit. So is it fully fair to judge him on that. Just off topic…there are some interesting coaches out of contract at the moment…BMH, Drostky,Ludeke, John Kirwin etc.

  • Brendan. He is in the system already, what are his current commitments? Pieter Rossouw also currently unemployed. Nick Mallet – we know the answer to that one. Heineke Meyer not yet renewed by boks (wouldn’t want him either). Hate to say it but Mr personality John Mitchel may be best pick unless some buddy gets pulled in by the old boys club. What is HR Edwards doing these days?

  • @Zibbie (Comment 34) :

    You read way to much into that one comment of mine.

    If there is a bigger, better offer on the table, for player or coach from any other team (not specifically Sharks), then surely if their current union (not necessarily Lions) can’t make a decent counter offer, then leaving that union becomes more and more likely, even a given.

    I believe if Straeuli was offered double his salary and the opportunity to be head coach again (which I don’t see the Sharks doing), he probably would go back to the Sharks (if he even still wants to coach).

  • This is the right move. I think BMH could have been valuable for the Sharks if we did not shove him into the responsibility of head coach that early. He’s credentials never fit the bill.

    So it seems Sean will then stay as backline coach and the new forwards coach may also be the head coach, much more like the structure we’re used to seeing with the Sharks. Only difference is the new DOR role which we never had. I’m not against the DOR role, it just needs to be clearly defined within the union, so that everyone knows their place. We need serious attention given to certain structures within the union and Gary seems to be the right guy for this role…. really hoping so.

    Yeah, and he’s been pretty good for the Lions, so I don’t think they would easily let him go.

    Plus, I don’t think JS is going to go back and contract anyone that he has let go over the past 2 years. I’m just saying anyone who is offered a good enough deal will leave any union for another.

    Yeah, I have level 2. There’s nothing to it really. I think Botes is way beyond 2 is by playing for all those years, but still, I would expect us not to make the same (or even worse mistake) as we did with BMH. We need someone with coaching experience at this level. Botes has never even coached a schoolboy team, not to my knowledge anyway.

    The Sharks needs a no shit taking coach like John Mitch but can’t see this happening.
    I would like either John Mitch or Jimmy Stonehouse as Head coach and all the assistant coaches to be restructured to other positions as to allow the new Head coach to appoint his own assistants.
    The Sharks will go for Deans, Williams, De Villiers, Rassie Erasmus or some other “tried (or tired) and tested” option.

  • For me I have been saying this for some time now, somehow convince Mitchell to become head coach and ask Robert du Preez to join as his assistant, also bring in a Kop Doktor!!!

    As for Horak I think Bashford was better with defence as a coach than Horak.

  • Get duck Muir in at least as a temp. Take it from there. We are once again running out of time before the next big contest, not to mention some key players might get nervous and sign elsewhere.

  • Good Night,good bye good riddence,why did it take so long,the Sharks now need a heavyweight coach who has won SR,only problem such men won’t work with a DOR like Gold ,so big problem already, Deans or Mackenzie would do ,still think JM is the right man.

  • pparently Jimmy has informed the Bulls, Stormers and Sharks of his coaching interests. We need to move quickly and offer this guy a forwards coach role before the other unions do. The Bulls will go with the Van Graan, Matfield and Fourie combo. Stormers on the other hand have proved to be very street smart and may offer him a forwards coach role. We need to be smarter and move quickly. Imagine a John Mitchell, Jimmy Stone and Cheester Williams combo!!? Getting an org**** just thinking about it.

  • Also noise im Eastern Cape that Jimmy is targeted for Kings head coach.

    How about Mitchell HC, Stonehouse and Carlos Spencer as assistants. Stonehouse could be trained as future HC

  • @Kabouter (Comment 106) : you never know a man’s determination but for me the Sharks forwards job is more attractive than the Kings Head coach job. Jimmy is a very good coach and working with Mitchell can allow him to be an even better coach. He could then take over from Mitchell after 4 years. Just need John and Gary to make this happen quickly. Time is against us. I don’t want Theron anywhere near the Sharks. Stormers can have him.

    “If I was an assistant coach with a Super Rugby franchise and learning from them, I could in turn teach my guys.”

    Soooo ja I’m not sure he won’t accept an offer.

    Ok it was a story from Sports 24 I must admit.

  • @Zibbie (Comment 110) : The only thing that appears to be certain is that he wants to coach at this level and wants to further his career. Also can’t say I heard that he demanded the Lions coaching job but that would be a pipe dream if ever there was one. The Lions union is the only one that has things in order, or so it seems. ;-) The Cheetahs, Sharks, Bulls, Stormers and Kings are all going thru some serious changes and he could actually still join anyone of them.

  • @Farlington (Comment 109) : Thanks. Correct, that is what he said. Besides, which SA coach would not like to learn from Mitchell after seeing this year’s disaster of a tournament from a SA perspective. Even look at the Baby Boks, good on paper but my my…..the coaching creativity leaves much to be desired. If our coaches think they have the know how at this stage to win a SR tournament their heads are in the clouds. This is why it is imperative that our management fully comprehends this before making a decision on the HC vacancy. The decision needs to be a very strategic one that looks at the Sharks future. A guy like Mitchell can transfer his technical coaching skills to the entire Sharks rugby structure. The DOR role then becomes critical to our survival. At the moment we are in shambles. From the senior side right down to the craven week side. Total shambles. To date, we have not even managed to secure PSDT and Marcel.

  • @GreatSharksays (Comment 112) : I must admit I’m really concerned about SA Rugby in general. If you look at the state of the unions and the “brand” we playing we are really going backwards. NZL sides are way ahead and it seems each year they just pull away even more. The fact that we have had so many coaches leave in such a short space of time from our unions is disconcerting. Where are we heading? I really hope that who ever fills the vacant positions at the Stormers, Bulls, Sharks and Kings can and will have the required skill sets to make our unions competitive again. Hell if it wasn’t for the conference system where would we have been this year? This RWC is going to be very tough for us. And the sad thing is that it’s not like we don’t have the players.

  • @GreatSharksays (Comment 112) : proper strategic thinking is required and the guts to back it. A rebuild does not happen overnight though. Does anyone know the details of Stonehouse contract? Surely Sharks cant afford another big money buy out. For interest Stonehouse could also work well with Deans as AC. With Hawies Fourie apparently tied, I would love Carlos Spencer as AC, he is wasting his talent lying around at the Port Elizabeth beach bars.

    Hopefully the roles of
    Botes, Everitt, Anthony and Strudders become clear very quickly. Does anyone know Keyser’s coach qualifications and role?

    Any chance Andre Snyman could be lured back for in future? Sounds like he is giving it a good go in the USA
