Eagles head coach John Mitchell has been linked with another overseas job. This time he's been connected with the head coaching job at London Irish according to several outlets in the United Kingdom. It should be stressed that Mitchell has never expressed dissatisfaction with his role with the Eagles and has been actively working to set up the team for the summer. There are no active indications that he is leaving other than a few lines from the UK. Still, this isn't the first name his name has been linked in foreign outlets for head coaching positions. Only time will tell if this one is accurate.
London Irish have been in transition ever since they were relegated from the Premiership at the end of last season. The team have been the top side in the RFU Championship this season and have sealed the top seed in the playoffs. They are heavy favorites for promotion but will have to win their opening two-leg playoff and then the final.
