World Cup winner Jake White has turned down the chance to become England's new head coach.
White, who guided South Africa to the Webb Ellis trophy in 2007, is currently working with the Brumbies - with the Super Rugby outfit confirming on Thursday that the RFU had made an approach.
White, though, has a four-year deal with the Canberra-based franchise and had made it clear of his intentions to see out the current season at least.
However White has now opted to reject England's advance and remain in Australia.
White wrote on Twitter: "Always hard turning down a chance to win a world cup, but rugby is about making the right decisions and that's to stay with @BrumbiesRugby"
White's decision to rule himself out means Nick Mallett and current interim coach Stuart Lancaster remain the front runners to replace Martin Johnson.
