Brumbies coach Jake White has quit his job as head coach of Super Rugby finalists the Brumbies for personal reasons.
According to reports White has quit the Brumbies and is rumoured to have been upset that he was overlooked for the Wallabies job which was given to Ewen McKenzie.
White is understood to have asked to be released from his contract which had two years left to run on Friday last week.
The World Cup winning coach has been back in South Africa for a few weeks and has been spotted at Western Province (The Stormers) training session.
White has also been linked to Clermont Auvergne in the French Top14 as Vern Cotter is on his way out.
Canberra based Super Rugby franchise the Brumbies have yet to issue a statement confirming White’s departure.
Sources close to the Brumbies have however revealed that they have been considering his request since Friday and have just issued him a formal release now that his request is public knowledge.
Stephen Larkham is the most likely immediate replacement for White with the Brumbies.
