Grant steps up from his position in the BT Sport Scottish Rugby Academy to the role of Assistant Forwards Coach, to work under the tutelage of Head Coach Cockerill, with Attack Coach Duncan Hodge and Defence Coach Calum MacRae already confirmed last week.

Forwards Coach Stevie Scott moves on from the club after a number of years’ service, with thanks for his contribution both as a player, with 99 caps for Edinburgh, and latterly as a coach. Scott played an important role in the club, particularly in developing young talent, and leaves with our best wishes for the future.

Richard Cockerill said: “Following encouraging discussions with all involved, we’re excited to confirm the coaching and management set-up for the season ahead.  

“Roddy, Duncan and Calum all have a great affinity with Edinburgh and our supporters, which will prove instrumental in developing a strong culture for the club going forward.”

Managing Director Jonny Petrie added: “Stevie has been a great servant to Edinburgh over his significant playing and coaching career. He leaves with our very best wishes and sincere thanks for all that he has done for this club.”
