GRR: Nigel Melville
USA Rugby's search for a new CEO is well underway and it's possible we might get an announcement of Nigel Melville's replacement before Melville's tenure ends officially at the end of this month.
More likely, we might learn who takes over in July. What we do know is there were over 150 applicants for the job, and that list was edited down to a short list.
LAFAYETTE, Colo. - USA Rugby has announced that CEO Nigel Melville, who was slated to step down at the end of the year, is leaving at the end of June instead.
Melville was slated to transition to CEO of Rugby International Marketing, the supposed for-profit arm of USA Rugby. But now Melville will be joining the RFU to work as Director of Professional Rugby.
USA Rugby CEO Nigel Melville will step down from his position at the end of 2016.
The USA Men’s National 15s team needs a new coach, and word is that USA Rugby is getting close to making its choice.
While we’ve heard plenty of rumors as to who has applied, we’ll leave all of that up to the decision-makers. We do know that Mike Tolkin re-applied for the job.
