Sean Everitt

Senior Coach

Edinburgh Rugby appointed experienced South African coach Sean Everitt as Senior Coach ahead of the 2023/24 season.

The former Cell C Sharks Head Coach joined the capital side from Vodacom Bulls where he held a consulting position at Loftus Versfeld.

An outstanding attack and backline coach, Everitt brings a wealth of experience to Edinburgh Rugby, having been part of the Sharks organisation for 15 years (2007-2022).

Handed his coaching start at age-grade level and then developing through the Sharks coaching system, Everitt is a renowned man-manager, and his teams are celebrated for playing an attractive, exciting, and winning style of rugby.

Everitt rose to the Head Coach position at the Sharks for three seasons, leading them in Super Rugby, the BKT URC, EPCR Champions Cup and Currie Cup (Finals in 2020/21 and 2021/22), while managing some of the biggest names in South African rugby – including Springbok captain Siya Kolisi and South African internationalists Lukhanyo Am and Pat Lambie.

In his role as Senior Coach, Everitt will also lead on the club’s attack, with assistance from Robert Chrystie who has stepped up to Skills and Assistant Attack Coach.
