Premiership club Northampton Saints have announced that Alex King has left the club by mutual agreement.
The former England international, who has been the club’s attack coach since arriving from Clermont Auvergne in 2013, has left Franklin’s Gardens with immediate effect, and says that he has enjoyed his time at the club.
“As of today, both myself and Northampton Saints have reached a mutual agreement that I will be leaving the club,” he said.
“Helping Saints win the Premiership in 2014 is one of my career highlights and I wish both the players and staff all the success for the coming season.”
Saints chief executive Allan Robson thanked King for his contribution to the team’s successes over the past few years.
“Alex has been a valued member of the coaching staff,” he said.
“He played a big role in our Premiership and Challenge Cup titles and finishing top of the table in 2015. However we feel that the time is right to move on, and Alex leaves with our thanks and best wishes for the future.”
