Iestyn Harris, who has today been officially unveiled as the new head coach of Salford, is relishing the high-pressure environment he has entered.
Harris, 37, has signed a contract with the Red Devils until the end of 2016, after Brian Noble’s record of three wins and four defeats in Super League this season was deemed not good enough by owner Marwan Koukash.
Former Wigan assistant Harris says Koukash’s expectations will not faze him, and he is excited to begin life at the AJ Bell Stadium.
“This is a high performance environment and a results based business,” said Harris.
“But if you can’t stand that you’re in the wrong job.
“It is important you have high standards for yourself and I want to do a job that I’m happy with.”
As for his aims for the rest of the season, Harris says he is taking each game as it comes.
“My main targets are all about the next few weeks,” he added.
“I want to set my standards and see how the players buy into it.”
Harris will be assisted by Sean Long and Shane Flanagan, who Koukash says should overcome visa issues by the end of the week.
