John Mitchell quits as coach of Sale Sharks

FORMER All Blacks coach John Mitchell has quit as coach of Sale Sharks in the English competition to return to South Africa.

Mitchell left his position as head coach of South African side Golden Lions in November after being cleared of misconduct charges by the club.

Sale officials had hoped the 48-year-old would stay at the club permanently, but accepted he had left for "personal reasons".
