Former Jersey director of rugby Ben Harvey believes he took the club as far as it can currently go.
after more than five-and-a-half years in charge, leading them to three consecutive promotions on their way to the Championship.
Talking to BBC Radio Jersey, he said: "I felt that my time was up and it was as simple as that.
"It allows a very good squad and a very good coach, in Steve [Boden], to push on. I just felt that perhaps the boys needed a bit of a shake up and something different."
