GLENN MORRISON has left his role as head coach of Dewsbury Rams.
The announcement came late yesterday afternoon, only a day after Dewsbury suffered their sixth league defeat of the season – a 56-18 loss at Bradford Bulls.
Chairman Mark Sawyer revealed that Morrison approached him after the defeat to Bradford and confirmed he would be stepping down.
Despite a difficult start to the season, Sawyer only had positive things to say about Morrison's time at the club.
"He (Morrison) felt it was in the best interests of the club for him to step down and allow us to get someone else in, and give them enough time to try and turn performances around," said Sawyer.
"I can only reflect positively on Glenn's near five-year tenure as head coach of Dewsbury Rams.
"He was a part time coach who put in full-time hours and he brought some great players to the club, despite working to a limited budget."
It has been a turbulent few months for Dewsbury on the pitch, with poor results and a mounting injury list making good results harder to come by.
Dewsbury have won only one game since the turn of the year and Morrison felt it was time to part with the club.
"We have had some successful seasons that I'm proud of, but unfortunately we have just not had the results required this season, and so I feel the tim
e is right to part ways," said Morrison.
"I want to thank the club for the opportunity and the years I have had here, I wish Mark and the club all the success in the future, it has been an honour to have coached Dewsbury Rams."
Dewsbury will be coached by current assistant coaches Karl Pryce and Jonathan Schofield on an interim basis while they begin their search for a new head coach.
