Hadden endured a poor RBS 6 Nations with just victory over a lacklustre England side at Murrayfield to show for his team’s efforts.
Scotland would have picked up a second successive wooden spoon but for a better points aggregate than Italy, who defeated Hadden’s men in the last round of matches in Rome.
This campaign was the third Hadden has presided over and only his first RBS 6 Nations, when the Scots won three of their five matches, can be considered a success.
He had succeeded Matt Williams as coach with the national side at their lowest ever ebb and immediately secured victories over France and England in Edinburgh.
Success at the Stadio Flaminio rounded off a successful campaign but the two RBS 6 Nations campaigns since then have resulted in only two victories.
Sole, who led Scotland to a memorable Grand Slam thanks to victory over star-studded England nearly two decades ago, feels the time might be right for a change.
In his Sunday Post column he said: “Hadden and his squad failed to meet the 40 per cent win ratio set down by the SRU at the start of the campaign.
“Hadden is a decent man and one who has probably done as much as he can with this squad. It is probably time for a change.”
