Sean Long has left Wigan, less than three months after being appointed as an assistant coach at the DW Stadium.

The 36-year-old former St Helens and Great Britain scrum-half quit his post as assistant coach at Salford on 19 April and four days later was appointed by home-town club Wigan.

Long worked alongside head coach Shaun Wane and assistants Iestyn Harris and Paul Deacon with the Warriors but he leaves the club with immediate effect.

"Whilst it remains clear to the Wigan staff that Sean is a highly-skilled and competent coach, he has found it difficult as a new staff member to integrate into the disciplined and already high-performing culture at the Wigan club," said an official statement.

"This has been particularly challenging for him at such a crucial time, part way through the season.

"The parting was mutual and Wigan wish Sean well in his next role."
