Nottingham Forest step up search for new coach


Nottingham Forest have stepped up their search for a new coach to replace Jack Lester.

Reds boss Mark Warburton confirmed earlier this month the Reds were on the hunt for a new Under-23s coach, after Lester left the City Ground to take charge of League Two Chesterfield.

And the club is now officially advertising the position, inviting applications before a closing date of November 13.

“Nottingham Forest are looking to recruit a Senior Professional Development Coach to lead the club’s Under 23 side,” the club said.

“Reporting to the Academy Manager, the successful candidate will lead and manage the programme for the development of players in the Under 23 squad, ensuring that it provides the best opportunity for transition from the Nottingham Forest Academy to first-team football for those players graduating from the academy system, preparing them for senior football, either within the club or externally.”

Warburton insisted Forest will take their time to get the right man because it’s such a key role at the club.

“We will look to replace him with another quality individual,” he said.

“These are important decisions and you do not rush into those decisions.”
