Miller to quit as Doncaster RL Coach

Doncaster RL coach Tony Miller.

Tony Miller is to relinquish his position as Head Coach of Doncaster Rugby League Club at the end of the current season.

He'll be replaced by former Hull KR & Hull FC stand off Paul Cooke, who'll take on the role of player/coach.

Miller has been involved with the Dons for 23 years as a player, captain, assistant coach (three times) and head coach (twice). The 2012 Championship One coach of the year has decided to call it a day due to his ongoing work commitments.

Chief executive of the Dons, Carl Hall, said: “I was totally shocked when Tony came to my house and told me he was not going to coach next season. However, I fully support and respect his decision and I know it wasn’t an easy one to make."
