Michael Cheikas five-year tenure as Australia head coach is over after he opted to not seek reappointment following the Wallabies Rugby World Cup exit.
Cheika had previously said he would resign if Australia did not improve to the World Cup in 2015, but flocked to England to reporters inquiring about his potential after Saturdays 40-16 defeat in Oita.
Together with all the 52-year-olds contract expiring at the end of the championship, the departure from the function of Cheika is instant.
I have asked the question at the media conference, you wouldve been there and listening, about what is likely to happen moving forward and at the time I was not keen to reply but I always knew that the answer in my head, I only wanted to speak to my wife and tell a few folks up there about it, Cheika stated.
I put my chips earlier in the season I told people no triumph, no drama.
So, Im the sort of man whos always going to back exactly what he says and that I understood from the final whistle but I only wanted to give it that bit of time to cool down, talk to my people and make it clear.
New Zealander Dave Rennie, the coach of current Glasgow Warriors boss and the Waikato Chiefs, has been connected with the article in the press.
