Former Ireland coach Eddie O'Sullivan interested in England job
Wednesday 23 November 2011
Former Ireland coach Eddie O'Sullivan wants to replace Martin Johnson as England
boss, his agent has disclosed.
O'Sullivan last week announced he would stand down from his role as United States head coach after deciding not to reapply for the position after two years.
The 53-year-old was appointed Ireland coach in 2002 where he enjoyed an six-year spell in charge during which the team won three triple crowns and he was also part of the Lions coaching team on the 2005 tour of New Zealand.
Now O'Sullivan has made public his interest in succeeding Johnson who resigned earlier this month following England's disastrous World Cup.
His agent John Baker told the Daily Telegraph: "Eddie is definitely interested in the England job.
"The England job is one of the most high-profile positions in world rugby and they are a side with tremendous potential.
"Eddie's big advantage is that he has tremendous experience of the Six Nations and a fantastic track record in that competition."
