Head coach - perfect!! Murphy to DoR - convenient!!
Murphy to DOR is what a lot of people have been looking for, his skill set will suit that position better. I see it working much as Humphreys and Ackerman do at Gloucester.

Great how some posters can always see negatives from such a big positive
Completely agree. Deacs and Stanko working wonders with the scrum, lineout expert inbound with some great experience to boot, Murphy and Ford starting to make progress with and this will only continue when GM switches to DOR.. come on people, let's be positive!

When exactly is the 'end of Borthwicks international commitments with England'?

After 6n?

Summer?

November?

Great news, starting after 6N. Looking forward to a new era.
Straight after the Six Nations or when his international commitments actually finish in November? It doesn’t actually state this.

Pleased its finally been confirmed, and also pleased with the Murphy DOR appointment as he's been clearly been doing some good stuff behind the scenes even if out and out couching is not his best attribute.

We'll have to see just how good Borthwick is as a head coach, but hopefully this means we can carry on building the squad and finalise some contracts.

BBC news says he will start after 6N, which implies directly after 6N. But yes, that could mean 7 months after the 6N if anyone wants to be pedantic...

Maybe wrong but back in the day did Mr Cockeril not say that Mr Murphy would make a good DOR in the future. Looks like he was right again

Not sure he's proven himself to be a good DoR just yet, but here's hoping!

It’s not being pedantic. It was announced yesterday that Borthwick will leave his role with England in November so to say he will join Tigers after his international commitments actually suggests to me that he will join once his job with England finishes in November.

I’ve just looked at the BBC Sport App and it states this:
Steve Borthwick will join Leicester as head coach once he has completed his coaching commitments with England.

It doesn’t mention that he will start directly after the Six Nations.

True, but if player signings, retention and development are KPIs for a DOR I’d say he’s looking pretty good.

Well one thing is certain Murphy is the goose that laid the golden nest egg. I simply cannot see any justification whatsoever for his promotion or qualification other than as a player he is a Tigers great. Hope Borthwick thrives and Tigers prosper.
Without hope we are nothing, keep the faith, a Tiger for eternity

Well thankfully it’s not you who has to make the decision on who the DOR and Head Coach is

You don’t think Murphy has been key in developing the youth, retain players through selling a vision or making some great signings?

Murphy has sold the vision and Borthwick will deliver it......hopefully 😆

Yeah they've just changed it. When first on the app it said after 6N. Is there any way of posting a screenshot on here?
