Mike Cobb

An American rugby coach died on a trip to Thailand last Saturday, the website of USA Rugby reported in an obituary today.

Mike Cobb, 55, from Greenville, USA was killed Saturday, April 30 when he was struck by a car while he was walking with his friend. Mr Cobb, who played, coached, and officiated rugby for more than three decades, was in Thailand to participate in a rugby referee exchange when the accident occurred.

“We were shocked and saddened to hear of Mike’s passing, our thoughts and prayers are with Mike’s friends and family at this time,” said USA Rugby CEO Nigel Melville. “Mike was such a larger than life character, passionate about his rugby and always going above and beyond to help players, referees and coaches develop their potential.”

Mr Cobb was married for many years and is survived by her, his daughter and his brother. A small group of Cobb’s friends are working with his family to launch a memorial fund that will be used to perpetuate Mike Cobb’s memory and aid a rugby-related initiative.
