Bryan William Redpath (born 2 July 1971 in Galashiels) is a former rugby union player, and a member of the Scottish line of scrum-halves that include Gary Armstrong, Roy Laidlaw, Alan Lawson, Chris Cusiter and Mike Blair. Bryan attended Kelso High School in Kelso, Scottish Borders.[1]

Redpath won 60 caps playing for Scotland, captaining the team on a number of occasions. His appearances included two Rugby World Cups in 1999 and 2003.

He played for Melrose RFC in Scotland, Racing club de Narbonne Méditerranée in France, and Sale Sharks in the English Premiership.

Redpath retired from international rugby following the 2003 Rugby World Cup and was the backs' coach at Gloucester Rugby before being promoted to Head Coach on the departure of Dean Ryan in June 2009.[2] He resigned from Gloucester in April 2012 amid speculation that he was going to take the vacant Director of Rugby post at Sale Sharks.[3] He was confirmed as the Director of Rugby post at Sale Sharks in June 2012.[4]
