Scarlets have promoted Dai Flanagan to the position of backs coach.

A former Cardiff Blues and Ospreys fly-half, Flanagan joined Scarlets in 2014 as a skills/kicking coach and for the past 18 months he has also worked with the Wales Under-20s.

"This is a hugely exciting opportunity to carry on the work put in place by the previous coaching team," he said.

Scarlets have also appointed Richard Whiffin, the former Gloucester academy coach, as an assistant attack coach.

Whiffin has previously worked with London Irish and England's Under-20s.

Flanagan and Whiffin's appointments follow Glenn Delaney being confirmed as defence coach.

It is all change at Scarlets as Wayne Pivac departs to succeed Warren Gatland with Wales after the World Cup, with Brad Mooar named as head coach.
