Iestyn Harris has revealed that he was pleased to leave Salford at the time he did this season.
Harris was on sick leave for a time, before an exit deal was agreed which was mutually acceptable to him and the club.
“It was certainly mutual, we agreed it was the right way to part,” Harris told the BBC Super League Show.
“They’re a great set of players, the players were great to work with and there were some key players for me I’ve enjoyed working with.
“There’s a right time to part with a club and that was the right time.
“I’ve enjoyed working with the players, and I’m a little bit disappointed with how it worked out.”
As for his long-term successor at Salford, Harris has little advice to offer other than to keep working hard.
“You’ve just got to keep perservering and working,” he added.
“It takes time for a club to change a culture and environment, to become consistent. Eventually it will come.”
