Tony McGahan has extended his contract until the end of the 2011/12 season.
Happy enough with that.
Good to retain out Head/Defence/Backs/Skills Coach. Excellent coach, but would be a lot better if he would delegate some responsibility. He is one of the top Defence coaches in the game IMO, and based on the Munster team last season an excellent skills coach too.
Would like to see him bring in a Scrum, Defence and backs coach.
That's a good decision. McGahan has been an outstanding success with Munster. Paul Warwick, Keith Earls, Niall Ronan, Lifeimi Mafi, Ian Dowling, Denis Hurley (belatedly) and Tomas O'Leary have the Ozzie to thank for bringing their playing careers to a much higher standard than had previously been the case.
MunsterMan is right. If McGahan learns to trust his assistants more, he'll guide Munster to many more titles. I believe he needs to start with removing Laurie Fisher as forwards coach (I never liked Anthony Foley as a player but he's coming along nicely as a coach) and bringing in some specialists to help the defence and scrum.
