Ulster Chief Shane Logan To Step Down After Turbulent Year

Ulster Chief Shane Logan To Step Down After Turbulent Year
By Maurice Brosnan Updated

Ulster chief executive Shane Logan is to step down from the position in August, the province confirmed today.

It comes after an extraordinary year which saw considerable fall-out from the Paddy Jackson and Stuart Olding trial as well as two different head coaches depart.

Ulster did not say why the departure was coming, although BBC NI had reported that there had been tension between the IRFU and the province over player recruitment.

Logan released a statement via the club earlier today.

I am very grateful to have had the privilege of being Chief Executive of Ulster Rugby since 2010. We have been able to build a fine stadium, repay our debts, deliver consistent profit and strong commercial growth. This is now allowing us to invest in our clubs, schools and very significantly in our Academy.

In terms of win ratios, the senior Ulster Team has become more competitive but I am as disappointed as anybody not to have landed that elusive trophy.

There have been some significant challenges in recent years. I hope that the unity with which everyone in Ulster faced these will endure for generations. I wish everyone in Ulster the very best for the future.

Logan will remain involved in the day-to-day running of the business until his departure.
