Former player Collin Osborne is keen to “build for the future” after returning to Birmingham Moseley as head coach.
Osborne, who played for Mose as a centre in the late 1970s and early 1980s, was confirmed yesterday as the successor to Simon Cross, who left the club due to “competing work commitments”.
“I am excited to be back in Birmingham the city of my formative school years,” Osborne said. “I am looking forward to working with the playing group, drawing out their potential and building for the future.”
Osborne was part of the senior coaching team at Premiership Rugby side Harlequins for over 20 years .
He started out as head of youth development and then became academy manager after the Rugby Football Union introduced academies.
Collin was responsible for developing a group of players who featured regularly in their Premiership side and gained international status with England.
He went on to become head skills coach, a position he left in July, citing personal reasons.
Prior to his time at Harlequins , Osborne coached the Zimbabwe national side.
He also worked at Esher in National 1 with former Canadian international Mike Schmid and brings a wealth of experience to the role at Billesley Common.
