Wasps have announced that Richard Beck has joined the Club as Academy Coach ahead of the 2019/20 season.
The 29-year-old joins from Yorkshire Carnegie, after a 13-year association with the Leeds-based club.
Beck joined the formerly-named Leeds Carnegie Academy in 2006 before earning his debut for the club in the 2009/10 season.
He went on to enjoy ten seasons at Carnegie, playing 132 matches, crossing for 14 tries, and was named as Supporters’ Player of the Year in 2017/18.
In December the 29-year-old was forced to retire on medical grounds and has since been working with the Carnegie Academy where he has been helping the next generation.
Beck will now be reunited with former teammate and Wasps Academy Manager Jon Pendlebury, as well as former Italy star Andrea Masi and Matt Williams as part of the Academy coaching set-up.
