In a post on their Facebook page that seems to have since disappeared, the Edinburgh Wolves have shared their latest coaching appointment with the announcement of former East Kilbride Pirates Head Coach, Ross Templeton, as Defensive Coordinator ahead of the 2019 season.
The move follows Templeton and the Pirates parting ways midway through the 2018 season after the longtime-Scottish powerhouse struggled to pick up any momentum, or crucially wins, in a hotly contested Premiership North.
The Wolves shared:
It may be the offseason for BAFA Senior League football but the Wolves are working hard in the offseason to prepare for 2019.
As the #1 team in Scotland we are always looking to strengthen our squad of players we also look to add talent to our coaching staff.
The Wolves are delighted to announce the appointment of Ross Templeton as Defensive Coordinator.
Ross is the current GB Lions LBer coach and the former Head coach of the East Kilbride Pirates.
Wolves Head Coach Don Edmonston said
“As soon as I heard Ross was available I contacted him and offered him the role of DC.. Coaches of his experience and ability don’t come around very often so I grabbed the opportunity with both hands,,, he will bring a fresh outlook and new dynamic to an already capable defence and we can’t wait to get back into the swing of things”
Bringing Coach Templeton on board now frees up Coach Edmonston to move across tot he offensive side of the ball and he will undertake the role of O Line coach as a former GB Lions player and coach at OL, this move is like getting 2 new coaches for the Wolves.
Coach Templeton will be at this weekend’s 2nd rookie day at South Queensferry to run his eye over the latest recruits.
Look out for a Q’n’A with the Wolves new DC this weekend and also we will reveal two huge sponsorship deals for the upcoming season.
