Kevin Keen On Joint Role

Kevin Keen On Joint Role

West Bromwich Albion have today confirmed that Kevin Keen has joined the club as Joint-Assistant Head Coach, sharing the role with Keith Downing.

The 45 year old former West Ham and Liverpool first team coach will join with immediate effect.

He has worked with Steve Clarke for three years previously, so they will know each other well and understand how the other works which can only be of benefit as Clarke looks to get the whole team on side and playing how he wants.

Downing maintains the role he inherited after Michael Appleton departed for Portsmouth, and Kiely remains as goalkeeping coach.

Speaking to wba.co.uk after the announcement was made, Clarke said.

'Kevin is a fantastic coach, enthusiastic and hard working. He understands me, knows what makes me tick, and most importantly is a good person to have around the place. I think I've now got a great mixture in my coaching staff with Keith and Dean, who know the club and players inside out, and Kevin, who knows me and can help make that connection to all the staff easier.'

Sporting and Technical Director Dan Ashworth added.

'I'm delighted to welcome Kevin to the club. Steve was eager to work with Keith and Dean when he arrived and also targeted Kevin. We're delighted we've been able to keep the nucleus of last season's very successful backroom staff together.'

Now to hit the ground running in pre season so we can have a strong and confidence boosting start to the season proper.
