HAMMERSMITH & FULHAM RFC are looking for their third coach in their 31-year history after Dai Michael quit this week.
H&F got by on a combination of assistants of one sort or another until first tailor-made appointment John Griffiths quit at the end of the 2008 campaign.
Griffiths lasted three seasons - but Michael only managed the single term.
The outgoing boss was adamant it had nothing to do with a faltering campaign that saw Hammers use 47 players and finish a lowly eighth out of 12 in London North-West Three.
"I've been coaching or playing for 19 years non-stop," he said. "And when my wife quit playing at the end of the season for Saracens - it seemed like the best time to have a break. Mind you, spending more time together will see us divorced by Christmas," he joked.
Hammers celebrated nine individual awards at the club's lavish dinner at Queen's Club in Baron's Court on Saturday night.
Most improved player Arthur Woodward was revealed as a closet morris dancer, who's been twirling his hanky for 16 years when not playing for H&F.
And the assembled throng learned ladies' player-of-the-year, Sandie Kunkler, took the women captain's armband when approached by the outgoing skipper in the shower.
Quite a few male H&F soup-spoons were put down in the forlorn hope of further information.
