Former captain Stuart Hooper has been named as Bath performance and player development director, with Andy Rock joining the club as academy manager.

He had already been confirmed as a member of new director of rugby Todd Blackadder's backroom team.

Rock, 31, was previously Championship Yorkshire Carnegie's academy director.
