Newcastle United Official Announcement – Coach leaves after 21 days stay

6 days ago

Gary Caldwell has now moved on again from Newcastle United.

The former NUFC player was appointed on 16 August 2021 as the club’s ‘interim Under-23s lead development coach’ after the departure of Chris Hogg to MK Dons.

At the time it was described as a ‘short-term basis’ appointment whilst they looked for a permanent replacement.

Late Monday saw Newcastle United announce the departure of Gary Caldwell after only 21 days, though still no news of who will take over the job on a permanent basis.

Newcastle United official announcement:

‘Former Magpies defender Gary Caldwell has left the club’s Academy after completing his scheduled period as interim Under-23s lead coach.

Caldwell stepped in on a short-term basis last month following the departure of Chris Hogg, and leaves with the recruitment process to appoint Hogg’s full-time successor nearing completion.

Current assistant Kevin Richardson will take the team for its upcoming fixtures ahead of a permanent appointment being announced shortly.

The club would like to thank Gary for his contribution and wishes him well for the future.’
