LONDON(AP) England's Rugby Football Union says acting chief executive Martyn Thomas will leave next month at the end of his contract as part of a structural review following the team's dismal World Cup performance.
The RFU said Wednesday in a statement that Stephen Brown will continue as chief financial officer as well as take over on Dec. 16 from Thomas, who will also step down from the IRB Council, Six Nations Committee and the chairmanship of England Rugby 2015.
Earlier Wednesday, Miles Templeman and Andrew Higginson were appointed as independent non-executive directors to the RFU's board.
Manager Martin Johnson is expected to overhaul his support staff if he wants to keep his job following England's quarterfinal exit in New Zealand.
