ANDY Key is the new head coach at Rotherham Titans.
The 58-year-old former Leeds chief has signed in at Clifton Lane with the brief of reviving the club’s fortunes following this week’s dismissal of Justin Burnell.
And Titans co-owner and chief executive Martin Jenkinson says he’s the man for the job.
“Everyone’s looking for a formula and we need to get back to where we were,” said Mr. Jenkinson.
“We need to refocus on the core values and get everything back Rotherham-centric and understand what we are about.
“Andy has a depth of experience above and below us. He was with Leicester Tigers, took Leeds to the Premiership and he’s also successfully coached latterly at Leicester Lions who are a couple of divisions below us.
“I took soundings about him from people I respect, such as Lee Blackett, and they said he was the man for the job. He knows what rugby club life is all about.”
Key will remain with his Leicester Lions club for their final National Two games before taking full control at the Lane.
Steve Salvin and Jon Clarke will be in charge for tomorrow’s home finale against Nottingham (3pm).
