“This means he will not be part of the Hurricanes coaching team for the remainder of Investec Super Rugby Aotearoa,” the Hurricanes stated.
“We would like to thank Carlos for his significant contribution to the Hurricanes and wish him all the best for the future.”
The 44-year-old joined Hurricanes as an assistant coach at the start of the 2019 season.
During his playing days, he played at fly-half for the Blues and Lions in Super Rugby and for New Zealand internationally.
Spencer was valued for his imaginative kicking and passing game, and his ability to unlock defences. He was also a handy, if not entirely reliable, goal kicker. Only five players have scored more test points than Spencer for New Zealand — Daniel Carter 1,598, Andrew Mehrtens 967, Grant Fox 645, Beauden Barrett 465, and most recently, Aaron Cruden 322.
