Lowes resigns as Bradford Bulls head coach

Bradford Bulls announce the departure of Head Coach James Lowes, who has resigned due to personal reasons.

The club said in a statement that they “put on record its gratitude for the significant contribution James has made as Head Coach during his 22 months at Bradford Bulls and we wish him every success in the future.”

Matt Diskin will act as interim Head Coach, with Chev Walker in support, as the process of seeking a replacement begins immediately.

Lowes has agreed to conduct a complete hand-over to the performance department in preparation for this weekend’s game against Workington Town.

“This decision has come with a heavy heart and I have had to make this tough call for personal reasons, and I request everyone respects that,” said Lowes.

“I would like to personally thank the players, directors, staff and especially, all the supporters of this great club for my time here.”
