Marwan Koukash has confirmed that Tim Sheens will become Hull KR‘s next head coach.
Love Rugby League reported several days ago that Sheens would leave Salford and take the Robins job.
“I always said I would release Tim if he got the opportunity to become a head coach,” Koukash told Press Association Sport.
“Ian has progressed so well that there was no prospect of Tim becoming head coach and I am very confident he can now cope on his own.”
Sheens joined Salford last year as director of rugby.
