The Blues will be without assistant coaches Paul Feeney and Glenn Moore next year after the duo confirmed they would be leaving Auckland.
Feeney and Moore worked under head coach Tana Umaga last season but have now decided to move on to pastures new before Super Rugby 2017.
"I intend to seek a more hands on coaching position. And believe I now have the skills and ability to succeed in that sort of role," Feeney told Newshub.
While Feeney is looking for a new coaching job, Moore has chosen to pursue other rugby and private business interests, with Umaga wishing them both well.
“After a year in this position and in light of these changes, we are taking the opportunity to review our coaching structure for the future," he said.
