Bradford Bulls can confirm that Geoff Toovey will not return to the club for the 2018 season.

Co-owner Andrew Chalmers stated: “Geoff joined us as we embarked on our journey to re-build the club. He worked tirelessly with the support of the football staff to try and overcome last season’s 12-point penalty.

“We would like to thank Geoff for stepping in at a difficult time and for the personal sacrifices he made to commit to last season. We wish him all the best in the future.”

Geoff Toovey added: “It was a tough decision not to return to the Bradford Bulls for a second year. Last year was one of the most challenging years that I’ve had as a coach.

“The club and the fans made the experience one I will never forget, from the bottom of my heart I would like to thank the club, coaching staff, players, sponsors and fans for their unwavering support throughout the year. I’m confident the club will have an excellent season in 2018 and continue to move forward beyond the coming year.”

The club is actively working to employ the right Head Coach to ensure promotion this year. Leigh Beattie will act as the interim Head Coach, a role he undertook at the start of 2017.
