Yes I agree with what someone said in the other thread. Been with the club 17 years and huge amount of respect for what he has done. Do wish him all the best for the future but after how it has been for the past season or so, we were in dire need of a change.

Can't help feeling nothing will change until someone brings in a new coach or coaches. Let's hope to god we get a DOR of high repute or else the fans will be on his back from the start.

Regardless of anything, JK has dedicated almost his entire non-playing career to Quins and for that we should be grateful.

In no way has it all been bad and I hope we can all remember him for the good times and not the end, which could have been handled better.

When all's said and done, I will seek him out at Kingsholm to shake his hand.

A sad end but one that has been coming for a long time. I'm not convinced he wanted the role in the first place, and ultimately it just hasn't worked for whatever reason.

He deserves a huge amount of respect for his commitment to the club, and I hope the players pull their fingers out and get him at least one result in the last few games. They owe him that much at least.

As others have said he's not the only one who needs to go, and I hope the new DOR comes in and is allowed to bring in his own people.

Questions have to be asked about Ellis' handling of all of this considering JK was given a new contract not very long ago, but ultimately the right decision has been made and I immediately feel a bit more positive for the future, whilst feeling sorry for JK and anyone else who ends up leaving.

COYQ!

If I were the Quins owners I would be VERY unhappy with David Ellis. He took over a club that was just about to win the premiership on the back of what he inherited. We have fallen a long way and I am not sure if the financial performance is any better? Not helped by offering a contract extension absolutely no justification which now presumably means a pay off for JK and others no doubt.

I have never been impressed with Ellis, the man talks in pie charts, I am sure he understands a lot about housing associations.

A lovely guy but something has clearly gone wrong.

Having talked with John, he once bought me a beer, I know that he's an ok guy & we all know that give him a forward pack to develop & he'll be a winner. But John should never have been appointed DOR & I'm rather shocked that he accepted the post. He probably did through loyalty to the club. He's a good guy who from afar appears to have been put up to be sacrificed. Which is why I am so angry with Ellis who I think is the architect of our downfall.

Now it might be that he also is out of his depth, being quite a good commercial director. So that says to me why dont we have a Rugby Chief Exec working alongside Ellis..??

Perhaps the fall out from this will highlight issues which the board will accept as errors & make suitable adjustments? I think everyone needs to accept their failures & learn. But John has been a fantastic servant to the club & I for one fully respect what he has done for us & the pain he must have endured on our behalf.

Now lets crack on & get the DOR & coaching & S&C sorted out.

I'll dissent here.
JK was not up to the job 15 years ago and he has set us back in the last 2 seasons.
It was a terrible decision to appoint him, a worse once to renew his contract.

To disagree with some comments, I think recriminations are entirely justified, and are necessary.
If I may quote Mr Ellis:
"John is developing the squad gradually to be his own and his great desire to evolve a positive environment across the club will stand us in good stead, as we layout our long term vision to drive Harlequins onto the next level"; that was stated approximately 90 days ago.

Shall we paper over cracks here ?
Or shall try to cleanse the stables ?

17 years a servant to the club, we owe him little but thanks. It's a shame how it ended, DOR obviously a promotion too far for him, but there is no denying the man's service and commitment to Harlequins.

Hope he goes well in his future endeavours. However, we need to move on at this time and in more ways than one dismissal can permit.

Despite all the 'mutual agreement' stuff in the press, the question has to be - did he jump or was he pushed?

If JK had wanted to resign on his own terms he would have done it after the match on Saturday and gone immediately.

An announcement on Monday means he received the call from the CEO, was shown the press release, told what the redundancy settlement package would be and was asked to sign a non-disclosure agreement.

After supporter reaction on Saturday and ST threats the club have been panicked into the decision - but then bizarrely ask JK to stay on until the end of the season??? Clearly management have no faith in anyone in the rest of the coaching staff taking over responsibility - or will be getting rid of others when the new DoR is in place.

Personal tragedy for JK and his family but the right decision for the club.

Having been one of the biggest critics of JK since his appointment as DoR I think I did put the redundancy into the correct perspective.

To be sacked from any job is a personal tragedy - irrespective of the rewards enjoyed in the position.

No doubt his payout is no more than the terms in his contract of employment dictated and reflected the senior post he held. The sum may be large to many but is unlikely to have been generous although it will be tax free.

He has been a great servant for the club, he has played in the quarters. He wanted the best for the club. He is an excellent coach but i don't think he is DOR material.

But it's not just him. The coaches need to be reviewed. Nick Easter, Nick Evans made too big a jump from coaching a division 2 south side.

I wish John kingston all the best and I hope he gets a job soon.

But the rot is at the top. As an organisation both on pitch and off it the club is not playing well.

This shows incompetence at the top. Offer an extension then sack JK. It is not good. David Ellis needs to consider his position and see if he is cut out for it,

Some of this was interesting

Quote:
Kingston initially told people that he did not want the job, having previously held the reins after Dean Richards’ exit in the wake of the Bloodgate scandal.

...

new appointments such as Nick Easter and Nick Evans are long-serving players not able to offer fresh perspectives, which England prop Joe Marler alluded to in an interview in February.

“Although they are in coaching roles, they have still been at the club a long time and things are quite familiar,” Marler told the BBC. “You have got people in different roles but they still have been at the club for a long period of time. As coaches and management they could probably do with a freshen up.”

I like to think that everyone will get behind the new DOR and give them time to implement changes.

JK didn't get as much time from some (including me) because he was part of the setup before he arrived, and to be fair he's been given two years to show he's up to it anyway.

For me we're going to need to give the new man at least two seasons to make an impact and I certainly hope that there won't be knee-jerk reactions if things don't start perfectly.

It will depend on who gets the job. There are some on here (not aimed at you) who are likely to take every opportunity to criticise. Whether that's a way to have a dig at the club and/or Ellis, I can't say. But be prepared... some will be gracious enough to give the new incumbent time to bed in, whilst others may not.

To be fair I think you can support the DOR and the team whilst still being critical of how the club is being run.

Whoever we appoint, big big questions need to be asked about how Ellis has managed the initial recruitment of JK, and the subsequent decisions to then extend his contract and then effectively sack him.

But in terms of the DOR, even if you don't agree with the appointment, I think two seasons is a reasonable time before you can start saying you were right. The only caveat to that is that if we hire from within again, then the same will apply as did to JK.

Agree it depends on who gets the job. If we go for another patch-up job (which I don't think we will), then some will struggle to get on side.

If they sweep out the other coaches that should also be falling on their swords and a new unit of quality comes in, then they'll be more likely to given more latitude (if needed).

I have always liked JK, and am sorry to see him go. Had our injuries this year played out differently I suspect we would be having a very different conversation. Have we actually seen JK's team (the one he recruited) play yet? And now we will never know.

It is not what the fans think, the press or even the team, it is down to the club's owners that these decisions are made. I think JK had a fair crack of the whip, two seasons to show what his recruitment/coaching style could do, but he (and Quins) have been very unlucky. In the end, the owners have only got one button to press, and they have pressed it.

Good luck for the future John, I will miss you.

It will depend on who gets the job. There are some on here (not aimed at you) who are likely to take every opportunity to criticise. Whether that's a way to have a dig at the club and/or Ellis, I can't say. But be prepared... some will be gracious enough to give the new incumbent time to bed in, whilst others may not.

I guess there will be 3 types of posters. Those who think the new appointment is a good one, those who don't but give him a chance to prove them wrong, and those who don't and won't. Not sure there's much wrong with any of those. I don't think people should be criticised for not rating a DoR.

I'm just going to find a nice comfortable bit of Trellis to sit on for a couple of years.

Turns out that JK decided to go a few weeks ago, according to this piece in the Torygraph.

I read the same. If he had decided then why did it take 2 weeks and a bit coincidental it followed the horror show versus Irish.

Not clear to me why it matters unless we’re keen to rob a nice man if his dignity. He’s not leaving until the end of the season so how would it have made any difference to the result?

It's possible it leaked out before the Irish game causing the poor performance then.

You see, that's what worries me. If it had leaked it shows a disappointing level of mental toughness among the players.
