Gloucester have appointed Ulster boss David Humphreys as their new director of rugby.

The former Ireland fly-half succeeds Nigel Davies at Kingsholm and will now seek his own backroom staff, principally a head coach.

Davies was dismissed last month after a lacklustre Aviva Premiership campaign, his second season with the Cherry and Whites.

Humphreys captained Ulster to the 1999 Heineken Cup, then oversaw the Irish province's run to the 2012 final.

The 42-year-old won 72 Ireland caps in a 10-year stint with Ulster before moving into the coaching set-up first as director of operations, then director of rugby.

Humphreys will take charge of the running the playing squad's infrastructure and strategy, handing much of the daily team preparation to the eventual new head coach.
