    Or anyone that they told of their reasons.

I can imagine he's waiting on the top job with Munster when the time and environment is right.
      Yeah, seems like he doesn’t want to come back until he’s ready to be head coach of Munster, and that won’t be until he’s made and learned from his mistakes doing a head coach role somewhere else.

      He’s a smart fella. He knows the expectation and pressure will be huge when he does come so better to wait until he feels he’s fully ready. Also probably wouldn’t want to risk Munster’s success for his own development.

      Have to say, everything about the way he’s building his career, including decisions like this, suggests that he’s going to be a fantastic head coach some day.

          "Felix Jones is not a top attack coach. That's the reality. A good coach (or manager), understands the strengths of his team and devises plans to get the best out of them. We have been much less than the sum of our parts in attack. He's had 2 years to get something going and there's been no progress."

          The narrative was put out that he was very well regarded behind the scenes, this was not reflected on the pitch. Obviously the head coach not blameless either but we have looked totally blunt in attack for some time now. Chris Farrell's interview was very frank and brutally honest.

            Anyone who is interested in ROG's thinking on coaching should listen to this interview with Scott Robinson. He has changed his whole philosophy on rugby since he went down to the Crusaders. If he ever comes back to Ireland, he will want to change the whole way rugby is coached with a lot more emphasis on skill and from an early age.

              The narrative wasn't just put out. He was in line to get a development role with Munster initially, met Rassie who was very impressed with him and obviously continued to be impressed with him because he offered him a job down in SA.

              For whatever reason, Munster is a backs coach graveyard - we've had Gaffney, Dutchy, McGahan, Simon Mannix, Brian Walsh, Ian Costelloe and Jones and they have all failed! Mind you, most of them seem to go onto being successful elsewhere.

                Thats one way of looking at it but if you look at our squad ,we have made semi finals but not finals ,we have the personnel now i believe to win something but we dont have the attacking nous or belief to do it.
                it will be a shame if the likes of pom earls murray stander dont ever win a trophy with munster.
                ROG even if he were to take an attack coaching position would only enhance the respect munster supporters have for him and if he were to help us win something all the better .
                We need something and we need it fast too ,im fed up with transistion .
                Still there's a light I hold before me

                  I wonder would peoples opinions of our attack be any different if Joey has been available since the 6N? We have looked a lot better in attack with him on the park, he had a great run of games after the draw away to Castres.

                  JJ and Tyler are limited in a lot of regards, Tyler especially has been very average in the last few games and he couldn’t have been subbed fast enough against Sarries.

                            Apparently they have interviewed Larkham.

                              Larkham would be an interesting option and also immediately available for the upcoming season.

                                To save people the trouble -

                                Former Australia out-half Stephen Larkham has emerged as a contender to become Munster's new backs and attack coach ahead of next season.

                                The Irish Independent understands that Larkham has been interviewed by Munster with a view to taking on the role that will be vacated by Felix Jones.

                                Current Wales attack coach Rob Howley has already spoken to the province, who continue their search for the right man.

                                Larkham had been coaching Australia's backs under Michael Cheika until earlier this year when he was axed from the set-up amidst reports of a rift between the pair.

                                Since retiring in 2007, the 44-year-old, who won 102 caps for the Wallabies, had been working with the Brumbies before moving into the national team.
                                After being let go by Cheika, Larkham took up a new position as national high performance coach advisor and has recently been working closely with the Australia U-20s, who face Ireland in the Junior World Cup on June 8.

                                Yesterday, Ireland U-20s head coach Noel McNamara rubbished reports linking him with the position at Munster as the province focus their attention on a more experienced candidate.

                                Larkham previously played for the IRFU's performance director David Nucifora when he was coaching the Brumbies from 2002 until 2004. It remains to be seen if their previous relationship can help facilitate any potential move.

                                While a deal has not yet been agreed, if Munster can sign Larkham, it would be a major coup.

                                Despite his time with the Wallabies coming to a disappointing end, he has a strong body of work behind him, particularly in 2015 when Australia made it to the World Cup final.
                                Tis but a scratch.
