Joe Schmidt to be named Irish rugby coach
Australians Ewen McKenzie and Less Kiss have reportedly both missed out on the national coaching job for the Irish rugby team with New Zealander Joe Schmidt set to take up the role.
The Irish Rugby Football Union (IRFU) on Monday said it had appointed Schmidt as replacement for the sacked Declan Kidney.
Schmidt will leave his role as Leinster head coach to succeed Kidney, who was dismissed earlier this month after Ireland finished fifth in the Six Nations tournament.
No further details were given but the federation said a news conference was scheduled for later in the day.
Schmidt is thought to have been offered a threeyear contract that runs until 2016 and includes the 2015 World Cup hosted by England.
Last year he signed a new deal at Leinster until 2014 but the IRFU decided he was the right man to revitalise Irish rugby,[url=http://www.floware.fr]michael kors femmes[/url].
Kiss, Ireland's attack coach under Kidney, will lead the forthcoming tour to the United States and Canada, so the November internationals against Samoa, Australia and New Zealand will be Schmidt's first matches in charge.
Schmidt guided Leinster to the 2011 and 2012 European Cups after coming to the club from French side Clermont where, as assistant to Vern Cotter, he helped win their first ever French title in 2010.
