Not any more:

Sale Sharks and director of rugby Steve Diamond have parted ways in a stunning development at the Premiership club.

One month after the club appointed a new chief executive in Sid Sutton, Diamond has departed Sale after eight years in Manchester.

His exit comes so early in the season, with Sharks winning two of their three matches in the Premiership thus far heading into this weekend’s Champions Cup clash at Toulon.

“After 10 proud years with Sale Sharks I have taken the decision to step away from the business,” Diamond said in a statement.

“I feel that this is the perfect moment to hand over to someone else, given the club is now stable and in a great position to compete at the highest level.

“We have acquired a world class training facility, built an academy that is the envy of many premiership clubs and constructed a squad that can win tournaments and trophies at domestic and European level.

“I know Simon and Ged will continue with the progress we have made together, and I now look forward to taking some time out and planning my next challenge.”

Didn't see this one coming!!!!! :smt017

Doesn’t he own a 20% stake or something?

Seems very odd.

BBC reporting that he is leaving Sale for personal reasons. Hope that he is okay as recall he had a health scare a few years ago.

“Perfect moment”......?

Hope he is ok personally. Otherwise this does seem a bit odd.

All the best for the future. I too hope he, or a family member isn’t ill.
Nothing to do with finance as Sale’s players all agreed to take pay cuts before most clubs thought about doing this.
Not everyone’s favourite but he did a great job In a football mad area to make sure the North of England had a rugby union club where the community could get their children playing our great game.
Again, all the very best and Happy Christmas.

Cant stand the bloke, but another club losing a part of its DNA.

Blimey! We're making soccer clubs and their managers look stable.

Having met him, he is very sociable. As a coach and business person he is determined, competitive and does not give much ground. He may have had his run in with officials and not dissimilar to other coaches. In the heat of a game, their are frustrations shown and he will not be the last coach to show it.
Wishing him all the best for the future.

A fair summary.
