Richard Marshall has left the Club to take up the role as Head Coach at Salford Red Devils ahead of the 2021 season.
Marshall joined the club in June 2019 after a successful spell at Halifax where he took them to three top-four finishes in his four seasons at The Shay.
In his 18 months at St Helens he has played his part in leading Saints to successive Super League Grand Final victories as well as a Challenge Cup Final alongside firstly former coach Justin Holbrook before more recently Kristian Woolf.
But after former Salford boss Ian Watson left for Huddersfield, Marshall has taken the opportunity of a new and exciting role as Head Coach of a Super League Club.
Richard Marshall said: “I would like to thank everyone at the Club including all the players and staff. I have had a great time working at St Helens and to be part of a successful period which saw us reach a Challenge Cup Final before two Grand Final successes was brilliant. The players have been an outstanding bunch to work with and the Coaching staff have been really supportive and it was great to finish the season in such a memorable way. I have made no secret that I wanted, one day, to be Head Coach at a Super League Club and I am now looking forward to the next chapter at Salford.”
Kristian Woolf said: “I am really happy for Rich. He has worked hard over the last few years and has been part of a Grand Final winning team under two coaches. He has played his part in our success and although I will now come up against him in Super League next season I am really happy for him and wish him the best of luck at Salford.”
Chief Executive, Mike Rush said: “A big thanks to Richard for the last 18 months. He has been a great to work with and has been part of two Super League Grand Final wins. Everyone at the Saints wishes him well at Salford.”
Thank you to Richard for his services and we wish him the best of luck at Salford.
