Hogg to join Scotland coaching set-up in summer

Head Coach set for international role this summer

Warriors can today confirm that Head Coach Carl Hogg will be taking up a role with the Scotland national team this summer.

Former Scotland back-row Hogg has been added to the national team coaching set-up on an interim basis, while it was also confirmed that Scotland Assistant Coach Dan McFarland would leave the national team set-up mid-January to take on a Head Coach opportunity.

McFarland, who joined the Scotland coaching team from Glasgow Warriors in 2017, will remain in post for a nine-month notice period as the recruitment process for his replacement gets underway.

Hogg will share forwards-coaching duties with McFarland on Scotland’s 2018 Summer Tour to Canada, USA and Argentina.

Warriors Director of Rugby Alan Solomons said: “It’s great news for Hoggy and I have no doubt that he’ll do an excellent job.”
