Bullish Titans will appoint new coach today

TITANS will announce their new coach this afternoon after last night’s departure of Mark Jones — and he will start with an instant no-nonsense approach as the Clifton Lane club fights for its Championship life.

The club are tight-lipped over the appointment but I understand the new man will come to Rotherham possibly with the same accent but certainly with a different mindset as he looks to instantly end the ten-game losing sequence that heralded Jones’ downfall.

The new coach has experience in both the Pro 12 and Premiership and at international level but his biggest success has been in the Championship - and it’s that experience that Rotherham hope will resurrect their season.

Questions remain over what led to Jones’ exit - by mutual consent - yesterday but it’s clear there has been a failure on several fronts as a team which won six out of their first nine games collapsed from top-four probables to relegation possibles.

In this Friday’s Advertiser we’ll bring you a look at the new man and also analyse what went wrong with Jones’ tenure - and who’s to blame.

And stay tuned in to our website and Twitter accounts where we’ll bring you this afternoon’s breaking news from the Lane.
