Kevin Maggs promoted to head coach at Moseley RFC
By Brian Dick, Birmingham Post, 19th May 2011
Moseley has announced the promotion of assistant Kevin Maggs to the role of head coach. The 36-year-old replaces Ian Smith, who asked for his contract not to be renewed at the end of last season, in what will be his first job in charge of a Championship outfit.
The former Ireland centre has agreed a one-year contract having made a good impression in his role as Smith's backs coach last season.
Maggs beat off more than 40 other applicants and impressed the powers at Billesley Common with his contacts, commitment and positivity.
And although last term was effectively Maggs's first full season as a coach, he brings with him the benefit of 70 international caps, a stellar playing career and success in his first two sideline roles at Rotherham and Mose.
While Maggs admits he is taken aback at the speed of his elevation, he is determined to prove himself. "I have always been ambitious throughout my career and it's no different in coaching", he said. "I have been doing it on and off - because of my personal situation - for the last two-and-a-half years and it's come a little bit earlier than I expected. But it's a challenge I am really looking forward to. I have got a good support network both within the club and outside it and I can't wait to get started".
"I enjoyed working with Ian and expected to be doing the same this year but, it's a great opportunity being head coach at a club like Moseley with all its fantastic history".
