Steve McNamara has left his role as head coach of England, the Rugby Football League ­announced Tuesday.

McNamara, 44, had been in the role since 2010. His contract expired following November's Test series against New Zealand, which England won 2-1, and he has been told he will not be offered a new deal.

Veteran Australian Wayne Bennett, current head coach of the Brisbane Broncos, is expected to be appointed as McNamara's successor. Bennett, 66, is widely regarded as the sport's leading coach.
