Jake White on the move from Brumbies
Brumbies coach Jake White is reported to be seeking a release from the final two years of his contract.
White took the Brumbies to the Super Rugby final last month, but the ACT-based club lost 27-22 to the Chiefs in a thrilling title decider.
The 2007 World Cup-winning coach was keen to return to international coaching, but he narrowly missed out to Ewen McKenzie for the Wallabies job.
White has been linked with a coaching role with the Stormers based in Cape Town.
His assistant coaches at the Brumbies, Laurie Fisher and former international Stephen Larkham have been suggested as front runners to take over the Brumbies coaching position.
