Mark McCall

Coach Director of Rugby

Mark McCall joined Saracens at the start of the 2009/10 season as First Team Coach and helped the club achieve its maiden Premiership final that term.

In January 2011, following the news Brendan Venter would be moving into the role of Technical Director, the Northern Irishman was named Director of Rugby.

“He’s very clever as well in terms of the messages he gives to the group and he’s loved by every single person in that squad.” – Hooker Jamie George

He has been at the forefront of Sarries’ success for a decade with the club winning its first Premiership with victory over Leicester Tigers in May 2011 and a further four domestic titles.

McCall then led the Men in Black to back-to-back European Cups in 2015/16 and 2016/17, adding a third to the club’s collection in 2018/19.

Prior to his time at Saracens, the former Ireland international coached his country’s Under-21s and A teams before assisting Ulster for two seasons. He became Head Coach of the province in 2004, winning the Celtic League two years into his tenure, and he oversaw the development of nine of Ulster’s players into the Irish national side, the highest number since the game went professional.

Coaching Castres ahead of joining Saracens, McCall has also help develop and bring through a number of the club’s international stars.
