Ulster have announced that head coach Mark Anscombe has left the club with immediate effect with Les Kiss appointed as his replacement on a temporary basis.

The announcement was made by the club on Monday afternoon and the club offered their thanks to the New Zealander for his two years service at Ravenhill.

Ireland assistant coach  Kiss will take up the position of interim Director of Rugby, combining his duties with the international side with his new role at Ulster.

The interim appointment will allow time for a review of coaching structures.

Anscombe had just recently agreed a one year extenstion to his contract having been with the Irish Province for two seasons already, but speculation was mounting that he would follow David Humphreys out the exit door at Ravenhill.

Ulster Rugby Chief Executive Shane Logan said: "I would like to pay tribute to the contribution that Mark Anscombe made over the past two seasons and to thank him for his hard work and dedication.

"Everyone at Ulster Rugby wishes him well for the future."

Logan added: "Les Kiss will have an expanded remit for the province's Director of Rugby and will lead the coaching staff, assisted by Jonny Bell and Neil Doak, and will manage first team selection.

"His appointment allows us time to recruit for long-term success."

Les Kiss will take up his role at Ulster Rugby on 19 July.
