Former Ireland full-back Geordan Murphy has moved to the role of director of rugby with the Leicester Tigers.

His switch comes on the back of Steve Borthwick's appointment as head-coach of the Premiership side.

Borthwick has been part of England's coaching team for the last four years and he'll remain with Eddie Jones side for the upcoming Six Nations Championship.

Former Tigers player Murphy had been head-coach since 2018 but they've struggled in the league for the last two seasons.

"The appointment of Steve as head coach and Geordan in the role of director of rugby provides an exciting combination of leadership, expertise and experience to drive the club forward in its desire to challenge for major honours again," said Leicester chairman Peter Tom.

"The club has enjoyed many of its greatest successes with a blend of the Tigers DNA alongside fresh, innovative ideas from outside, both among the players and the coaching staff, and we look forward to Geordan and Steve leading that in their respective new roles."

"The last four-and-a-half years working with the England team has been an incredible journey," Borthwick said of his appointment.

"I have worked with some brilliant players and staff. In particular I would like thank Eddie Jones.

"To have worked with one the greatest head coaches in the world for so long has been an unbelievable experience.

"I am delighted to be joining Leicester Tigers as head coach. The Tigers have such a long and successful history, and are one of the greatest rugby clubs in the game."
