Alex Codling joins London Welsh after a successful spell at Ebbw Vale
The 33-year-old once-capped England lock led the Steelmen to second in the Welsh Premiership but did not want to keep commuting from his London base.
The Exiles wasted no time in bringing him to Old Deer Park for a role he will combine with the job of director of sport at Trinity School, Croydon.
Codling's former assistant Pat Horgan has taken charge of affairs at Vale.
London Welsh finished 12th this season in the English National League One, winning 11 of their 30 games.
