Paul Grayson says Bristol's treatment of Andy Robinson is a disgrace, following his suspension as director of rugby this week.
His suspension is pending a "review of their coaching needs" and kicking coach Mark Tainton has been placed in interim charge.
"I’m not a fan of conducting business in public. I’m not sure where this word suspended has come from. To play it out so publically personally leaves a bad taste in my mouth," he told Eleanor Oldroyd on 5 live Sport.
"For him to be sitting there now with everything in the papers I think it’s a disgrace to be honest."
