Ryan Whitcut has stepped down as joint-chairman of Bradford, in another change to the off-field set-up of the club.
Whitcut, who had previously served as general manager, was part of a new team of owners at the Bulls, following the departure of Omar Khan at the end of the season, just 12 months after he had rescued the club out of administration.
In a statement, Whitcut said: “I am stepping down from my role at the Bradford Bulls after conversations with the governing body of the Rugby Football League.
“Although I am disappointed, I am confident that the new team I brought together will help the club move forward and take it back to where it belongs as an industry leader.
“I have enjoyed the last 18 months involved here and made a lot of new friends, but I have a new journey ahead of me now and I wish everyone the best of luck as the Bulls move forward and go from strength to strength.”
Whitcut’s departure leaves Mark Moore in place as chairman alongside board members Ian Watt, Andrew Calvert and CEO Robbie Hunter-Paul.
