Daryl Gibson has opted to leave the Crusaders following a decision to change his role at the Super Rugby outfit.

Gibson has spent the past four years as part of the back-room staff at the Crusaders, working as assistant to head coach Todd Blackadder.

However Gibson has now ended his association with the club after he was asked to focus solely of the side's defence - with a new coach poised to look after the attack.

"It is time for me to forge my own path now - as shown by many Crusaders' assistant coaches, such as Colin Cooper and Vern Cotter - who have gone on to other exciting things," said Gibson.

The former All Blacks international, who also played for the Canterbury club as well as Leicester, Bristol and Glasgow, will now focus on his role as assistant coach with the Maori All Blacks for the three-match tour of the United Kingdom in November.
