The Scotland Rugby Union will have to dig deeper in their search for a new coach.

Crusaders coach Todd Blackadder is the latest to be linked to the role, having captained Edinburgh and was an assistant to former Scotland coach Matt Williams.

But Blackadder has confirmed he's not returning to the UK and is keen to continue with the Crusaders.

Former Crusaders assistant and Clermont coach Vern Cotter had been tipped to get the job, but he's believed to be committed to seeing out the final year of his contract with the French club.
